Denver's global business connections are the key to a vibrant future economy. Over the next couple months, we want to introduce you the people and organizations that help form Denver's international relationships, and that can assist you in expanding your business overseas.
With the help of Maggie Fouquet, President of IBCircle, we have the opportunity to talk with Beverley Simpson, UK Consul General in Denver. Simpson shares her perspective on developing relationships between Denver and Great Britain's businesses, which are beneficial for everyone. From creating partnerships that provided higher quality resources for Denver's Light Rail line, which in turn, will reduce maintenance costs in years to come, (listen to the show for more details) to helping entrepreneurs build businesses that help them live and work in the Colorado they love.
Beverley Simpson will be leaving the Consul General office later this year, so as part of our "exit interview" we find out some of her favorite Denver stand-ins for British standard treats!
Continuing our international tour, Maggie Fouquet takes us to India, by way of the Jaipur Literature Festival in Boulder.
The Jaipur Literature Festival originated in India as the largest, free literature festival on earth, bringing together some of the greatest writers and thinkers from South Asia and the World. The festival expanded to every continent, as a cultural catalyst - with the Americas being the last to take part.
That Boulder will host the festival speaks greatly of Colorado's convergence of cultural influences. The JLF is a free event at the Boulder Public Library, all day Saturday, September 19 & 20, and will include a focus on Literature of the Americas, Native American, Latino and regional literature.
Join us to hear more from JLF Founder and Producer, Sanjoy Roy and Jules Levinson, Festival Advisor.
Listen Saturday at 1:00 PM on 710 KNUS - Please let us know what you think of our program, either by commenting here or on our Colorado Business Roundtable Facebook page, or join the discussion on Twitter @ColoradoBRT
