WBJ’s Power Breakfast Series

April 7, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Want to learn some of the secrets of one of Glassdoor’s top-rated CEOs in the country – who happens to be based right here in Greater Washington?

Join WBJ for breakfast next Thursday, April 7 as the Washington Business Journal welcomes ChIp Paucek, CEO of local ed tech company 2U Inc. as the next guest in its Power Breakfast series.

WBJ Editor-at-Large Jennifer Nycz-Conner will ask Paucek about:
•What drove 2U’s recent decision to keep its headquarters in Prince George’s County
•How it plans to create 900 new jobs over the next five years
•What 2U is doing to change the negative public perception of online education through its works with top institutions including Georgetown University, USC and Syracuse University

Paucek has also gained a reputation as one of the top CEOs in the country. Glassdoor recently named him as one of the top-ranked CEOs of small and mid-sized businesses in the entire country – with a 93 percent approval rating by his employees. We’ll ask what he’s learned about leadership secrets that has enabled him to do that.

Tickets are normally $50, but use promo code WBJFRIEND102U and save $10.
