On the Shoulders of Giants featuring Governor Dan Evans

Washington State’s greatest and only three-term Governor.

Friday, October 25th from 8:00am to 9:30am

at the Columbia Tower Club

“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." ~ Isaac Newton

Dan Evans, generally regarded as the state’s greatest Governor and the only three- term Governor, then U.S. Senator, changed the landscape of Washington State and our nation. A nationally known Republican he is a self-styled Conservative who founded the country’s first Department of Ecology, which later became the blueprint for the Federal EPA. He counts one of his greatest contributions as his leadership role in advancing the career of the man who would become the Father of Affirmative Action.

The Columbia Tower Club has created a rare opportunity to meet Governor Evans in a small intimate setting where he will share his reflections and what he’s learned from his experiences as one of Washington’s most respected public servants.

Every opportunity available to us today is there because of great thinkers, builders and creators who have formed our communities as we know them. It is standing on the shoulders of these giants that gives us the ability to see and create what’s next.

This month we are honored to have Dan Evans join us for an interview and Q&A with longtime PSBJ Publisher and frequent CEO interviewer, Mike Flynn. Hear how we as entrepreneurs, business leaders and philanthropists can learn from Dan’s experiences.

Before and during the event you are invited to enjoy the Columbia Tower Club’s world-renowned signature breakfast buffet while taking in the views from the 76th floor for this exclusive invite only event.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Washington.
