  1. Great post Dr. Flaherty. I Googled "DC Advertising Week" and your blog was ranking. I attended the ADWKDC session this morning. All I have to say is that the DC Ad Club did an amazing job organizing this event. It was my first time attending ADWKDC and I'm sure it is the first of many. I would highly recommend any communications professional or student to attend.

    Here's my write-up of today's session:
