Work A Day World In Washington Dc

May 25th, 2016

There is no other place in the world quite like Washington, DC. The capital of American politics, there are literally thousands of lawyers and lawmakers housed in the city.

A recent report actually says that Washington, DC is the lawyer capital of the world thanks to the need for people who can interpret upcoming laws and tailor those laws to their clients needs.

This is not to say that lawyers are the only profession that has taken hold in the nations capital. Businessmen and entrepreneurs from all walks of life have begun their companies in D.C. thanks to the high population base and the need for a variety of unique professions stemming from the role Washington plays in the rest of the country.

Because of this, living space in the city comes at a premium, even houses and apartment complexes have tended to spawn office space Washington DC because of the very real constraints put on square footage thanks to a great group of people squeezed into a relatively small area. office space Washington DC has become something that is so sought after that bidding wars have erupted for that prime piece of real estate. Everyone wants to have office space Washington DC that allows them to get to their clients and potential customers and allows their clients and potential customers to get to them.

The large population inside a small square mileage also means that there are many companies and firms which all do roughly the same job and provide roughly the same service, making where these companies are located a sort of litmus test for how good they are at their job. A company or firm that is located within walking distance of Capitol Hill or even the White House generally means that they have arrived in the world as office space in this area is going to be far more expensive than some place on the other side of town

Testimonials

  • "Aside from having a tremendous amount of fun, the improv workshop was perfect for team building!"
  • "Every single one of the participants came up to me afterwards to say how much they enjoyed it. The way you weaved performance, humor and getting to know each other better was the key, and made it so helpful and enjoyable."
  • "Utterly fantastic! The team hasn't stopped talking about improv all week."
  • "Those exercises and improvisational games and discussions are great for business creativity, idea generation, presentation skills and, as one of my classmates said, "I feel like I'm going to be better with clients now, because I'm more confident in my ability to think on my feet."
  • "I'm a confident presenter generally, but with complex ideas to explain, sometimes I tend to speed through explanations. Last week, with I4B fresh on my mind, I caught myself speeding up during an important presentation. So I imagined myself in front of the classroom, paused for a breath, and then proceeded calmly and confidently — and now the agency I was presenting to is a step closer to working with me."
