WCEE Executive Series

A Conversation with Gloria Dittus

WCEE invites you to a one-on-one conversation with Story Partners Chairman Gloria Dittus – a recognized and respected professional in the communications industry.

Gloria is a trusted counselor who provides strategic communications, executive thought leadership, and corporate positioning and messaging advice to members of Congress, Cabinet secretaries, and business executives.

Gloria’s success and prominence are not new. In 1993, she created and directed Dittus Communications. Under her leadership, Dittus Communications was recognized as the "Public Affairs Agency of the Year" and WIRED Magazine called her the nation’s first “public affairs PR maven.” After the successful acquisition of Dittus Communications by FTI Consulting, Gloria founded Story Partners in 2010 turning it into one of Washington’s leading public affairs firms.

At this event, Gloria will speak about her 40+ years’ work experience in the energy sector, and in the U.S. Senate. She will also offer her acumen on creating, managing, and selling businesses. Additionally, Gloria will offer practical advice on how you can manage and/or avoid the challenges she faced in her career.

WCEE Board President Barbara Tyran will serve as host.
