At Tuesday’s Ellucian Live General Session, two speakers doubled down on the energy and passion that Magic Johnson brought to the stage on Monday.
Yesterday, we officially kicked off Ellucian Live 2016 talking about our host city Denver. Last month, Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation CEO Tom Clark told the New York Times “In the 1980s, we were Coors, Carbon, and the Cold War.” Today, Denver is home to myriad companies at the forefront of a new era of technological innovation – what the World Economic Forum has dubbed the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Last year at Ellucian Live 2015, we were beset by monsoons in New Orleans. This year in Denver, it’s blizzards in April. Next year, we’re preparing for a plague of locusts.
Ellucian Live 2016 kicks off in just a few short days. I know everyone is eagerly anticipating Magic Johnson’s keynote address at the General Session on Monday. He was, after all, the architect of Lakers’ NBA dynasty also known as “Showtime.” But I want to take this opportunity to mention a few more highlights you won’t want to miss.
