2140. What does that mean? Is it a password, a secret code of some sort?
And so I went, and to my surprise, it was an amazing event—probably the most impressive networking event I’ve ever attended (and trust me, I consider myself a seasoned “networker,” attending on average one to two events per week). Not only were there about 250 young professionals in attendance (including elephantjournal.com’s editor, Waylon Lewis, who was blowing his nose and saying ‘what!’ too loudly). The space where it was held, The Rembrandt Yard, was absolutely gorgeous and comfortably accommodated the large group. The food was delicious (not sure if organic or local or not ~ed), and the bar featured locally-brewed beer from Colorado brewing company, a wine selection, carbonated beverages and spring water from our very own Eldorado Springs.
The highlight of the night was the presentation on leadership by the CU Boulder Football Coach Dan Hawkins. Not only was the speech motivating, but his uplifting, positive attitude seemed to permeate the room, inspiring everyone to “be the best they can be,” and fulfill their greatest potential. All in all, not bad for a Wednesday night….and all for $15!
