The Colorado Business Roundtable (COBRT) hosts three signature events each year. We hear from global, national, and local leaders who educate and discuss shared challenges and opportunities that are influencing organizations. The speakers are renowned in their respective fields of government, business, and education. And, as always, it is an exciting time to network and collaborate. Come and experience these powerful one-of-a-kind events.
