February 14, 2023

The Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce has implemented three goals in our new strategic plan. Two of our goals are to attract and serve a diverse group of members from all industries representing businesses in Greater Bethesda and to grow awareness of the Chamber among both members and the public.


Living up to these principles, we invite you to celebrate Black History Month with us through our third annual member spotlight series. This special feature helps our communities learn more about some of its leaders and their impacts they make every day. 


This week, we have been honored to spotlight Eamoni Collier, Founder & CEO of Urban Garden Brewing LLC; Wes Bailey, III, President & CEO of IIIrd Eye Productions; Brandan Stuckey, ​Marketing Outreach Manager for Bethesda Transportation Solutions (BTS), a division of Bethesda Urban Partnership (BUP); Daryl Drumming, Vice President, and Branch Manager of National Capital Bank and KC Cole, Founder & Publisher of Potomac Lifestyle Magazine

PURCHACE TICKETS


EasyJet, a multinational airline headquartered in London, was hampered by many job openings so it launched an innovative recruitment campaign aimed at “empty nesters” and older adults. As reported by Joe Middleton in The Guardian, the campaign “follows research by the British carrier that revealed more than 78% of UK adults over 45 said they would like a new challenge once their children had left home.”


Indeed, they do.


The airline saw “a 27% increase in crew aged 45 and over in the past four years, including a 30% increase in over-60s in the past year.”
