Bill Shute is an executive management professional and government relations expert with high-tech startup experience who has spent his entire professional career working in the federal policy arena. In addition to creating and hosting 80-Proof Politics, he is currently Chief Operating Officer and Chairman of the Scholars Advisory Board for Dome Compass, Inc., a non-partisan mobile platform for federal policy decision makers, and is the Executive Director of the LBJ School of Public Affairs’ Washington Center.
In this special edition of 80-Proof Politics, we touch base virtually with a few of our previous Guestperts to see how they are adjusting a profession built on personal relationships and interpersonal communications to an era of self isolation and social distancing.
From telling federal agency personnel why they can't to now showing them why they should, Matthew Cornelius - three months into his role as Executive Director of the Alliance for Digital Innovation - joins 80-Proof at Lost & Found for a pre-coronavirus talk about how being a Duke fan while attending UNC prepared him for working at Treasury, GSA, OMB, and running an association of companies helping to shape innovation in government.
Arnie Fege and I sit down for a pre-quarantine conversation and drink at The Hamilton to discuss his rich experience in Washington, and how his formative policy years with one of the true leaders of the '60s led him to create and run one of the premier education advocacy organizations in DC.
Mark Bayer, President of Bayer Strategic Consulting, host of "When Science Speaks," and self-proclaimed persuasion nerd explains why it's important to connect before you communicate. He joins us at Siné Irish Pub in Arlington, VA.
