Optimal Networks Partners with The National Capital Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals to Recognize and Unite DC-area Ethical Companies
Rockville, MD—Optimal Networks, Inc., a 2009 National Capital Business Ethics Award (NCBEA) recipient, has partnered with The National Capital Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals to bring recognized ethical companies in the DC area together. The company will host a luncheon to unite past NCBEA award recipients on Wednesday, April 10 from 12-1:30 p.m. at Optimal’s offices in Rockville, MD.
“Ethical companies want to do business with other ethical companies,” said Heinan Landa, CEO of Optimal Networks. “This luncheon provides the opportunity for past recipients, finalists, and semi-finalists associated with this prestigious award to network and discuss best practices.”
The luncheon, named “In the Business of Ethics”, was the brainchild of Landa and NCBEA co-chairs, Elizabeth Schwarzman and Scott Harding. Schwarzman and Harding mentioned the need for a recipient alumni program and Landa offered to host and drive the programming.
Attendees will be encouraged to network and then be seated for lunch. During lunch, attendees will benefit from, and contribute to, a free-form roundtable discussion, moderated and led by Optimal.
“I’m really excited about the possibilities of this program,” said Schwarzman. “Ethical operations really do drive revenue and it will be energizing and inspirational to get the leaders of these high-performing, high-integrity organizations in the same room.”
