Dinner & Dialogue with Deborah Charles

29 May 2013 1:42 PM | Anonymous member

Last night, Deborah Charles met with members of WCSA as part of our Dinner & Dialogue series. Deborah is a homeland security and national security issues correspondent at Reuters. She has covered four presidential campaigns, five Olympics, and has worked at bureaus in Madrid, Bangkok, Montreal, Toronto, New York and Buenos Aires. After earning her undergraduate degree from Georgetown University, Deborah got her start at Reuters while studying in Argentina.


With her experiences working around the world, Deborah gave some great advice on making contacts in a new place and the importance of keeping in touch. She said if she were to go back in her career, she wishes she would have kept better track of some of the contacts she’s made. We also appreciated her advice on knowing when to ask questions and admitting when you don’t know something. She said that as a reporter, she’s had to cover issue areas that she is unfamiliar with, so being able to reach out and ask for guidance was an important lesson.  


Thank you so much to Deborah for all of your advice and for joining us for dinner last night! If you haven’t been able to make it to our Dinner & Dialogue series yet, watch for upcoming dinners in the WCSA newsletter!
