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.
After a whirlwind week in Denver, it’s hard to believe the event is over. At the risk of sounding cliché, it seems like we just got started. In case you’re a little fuzzy from the elevation and lack of sleep too, here are the highlights you want to remember from past couple of days in the Mile High City.
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.
Excitement crackled in the air yesterday—especially after Magic Johnson’s inspiring keynote session. After an action-packed day of breakout sessions and activities in the Exhibit Hall, attendees had a difficult decision to make: which reception to attend. Rather than choosing from all the fun options, some folks simply popped in to more than one.
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.
Well, as CEO Jeff Ray said in his blog, we weathered the storm. Despite a bizarre Spring blizzard that dropped a whopping 12 inches of snow at Denver International Airport over the weekend, early registration reports indicated that a vast majority of our 8,500 attendees made the journey to Denver safely in time for event kick-off.
