Vail Symposium launches ‘Ideas at Altitude’
Vail, CO, Colorado
There are few who haven’t felt the economic crunch. The question is, what are you going to do about it?
That is why the Vail Symposium has launched its “Rethink” series, meant, in part, to encourage young professionals to take a step back and reevaluate how they look at issues including business and the economy.
To celebrate the launch of the Symposium’s new Ideas at Altitude speaker series, there will be a party at E-Town in Edwards June 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. The event is free, and includes food, drinks, music and a guest speaker.
“A time of uncertainty leaves plenty of room for innovation and that was the reasoning behind our summer theme of rethink,” said Carrie Marsh, executive director of the Vail Symposium. “The Symposium felt it was important to create an outlet for this demographic.”
The guest speaker at the launch party will be a representative from Bear Naked, an all-natural granola company.
“This is a new and exciting series of programs from the Vail Symposium,” said Paulina Proper, who serves on the Ideas at Altitude committee. “It’s geared toward a younger subset of folks and will feature events, speakers and classes with a contemporary feel.”
Both Marsh and Proper feel that besides being educational, Ideas at Altitude will be great fun for those who attend.
Future Ideas at Altitude involvement with the Symposium will include programs geared toward younger professionals, including a tie-in with the Symposium’s film series and Unlimited Adventure Series. Marsh said that the Symposium is trying to open up to a new group in the valley and make a lasting connection with them.
“This is a great opportunity for young professionals in the Valley to get together in a fun, social way and learn more about interesting topics,” said Ideas at Altitude committee member Andrea Glass of Alpine Bank.
