State of Workforce

Deloitte’s origins in accounting stretch back 150 years, and now we’ve grown to nearly three hundred thousand employees across the globe in 90 countries. As the Managing Partner of the Denver office it’s important for our team to be a part of the community, professionally and philanthropically. The Colorado Business Roundtable is a connector that brings people together.  Through the Colorado Business Roundtable events I can connect with many other business leaders and hear what’s top of mind for them in terms of business, economic growth, challenges and opportunities which helps in executing our business focus:  serving our clients and helping them solve their toughest problems.

In Good to Great, Jim Collins states, ‘True success, whether in public, private or nonprofit sector, requires articulating a common vision and inspiring diverse groups of people to achieve a common goal.’  When I founded the Colorado Business Roundtable, I envisioned a need for a venue for Colorado leaders to better work with each other in the academic, business, community and government arena.  Using the power of networks, we have achieved extraordinary results.
