On May 12, S360 had the great pleasure of hosting Valerie Biden Owens for a talk and book signing of her new bestseller “Growing up Biden: A Memoir.” Mrs. Biden Owens shared some of her fond memories of her childhood and lessons learned, as well as some sage advice for us all.
When asked, “what would you do differently, if you could do this all again,” her reply was “Hire an editor.”
The inspiring and lively conversation also included the value of a thriving Democracy, holding true to your values under pressure, and always remembering your roots. Some special guests included former WA Governor Christine Gregoire and former Congressman Don Bonker. Several staff representatives of the Washington’s federal delegation also came out.
Before the event, our communications team organized a media interview for Mrs. Biden Owens with KIRO news, and the story got picked up by Yahoo News! Other members of the S360 team from across the firm footprint were instrumental in bringing this event to life, including making the right connections to Mrs. Biden Owens in the first place. The success of this event is a testament to the creative thinking, tenacity, and coordination between offices and practice areas of our staff across the footprint!
