    Join us for a special Influencer Mix & Mingle after hours with Keynote speaker Michael Hess, the Founder and Executive Director of the Blind Institute of Technology (BIT), who will leave us inspired when he presents an abbreviated version of his Four Sightless Principles of Communication Workshop—a multi-sensory, experiential, team-building communications workshop. And that’s not all! Be ready to trade ideas and inspirations with some of Denver’s most recognized business influencers this market has to offer. They’ll share secrets from behind the screen with tips on how to engage with influencers and tweet, snap, or vlog your way to new audiences. Take this opportunity to shake a few hands, trade a few stories with your fellow practitioners, and grow your network!  Apps will be served, drinks are available for purchase.

    Meet Michael Hess of BIT:
    Michael Hess, who has been touted as the blind guy in private Fortune 500 companies and managed multimillion dollar projects throughout his career, states it is because of his blindness, not despite of it, that he became a 6-figure engineer. He often travels and presents his inspirational message, including recently speaking at NASA. What’s more, many media outlets, including the Denver Post (https://www.denverpost.com/2017/03/13/denver-tech-school-blind-visually-impaired-job-preparation/), Denver Business Journal, CBS News 4, and Channel 9 News Colorado and Company with Denise Plante (https://blindinstituteoftechnology.org/27638-2/), have produced cover stories focused on the successes of Hess and BIT.

    Meet the Influencers:

     *This year’s Influencer Mix & Mingle is also the chapter’s Annual Membership Meeting, where we will formally elect the new 2019 board members. It’s a great opportunity to meet our incoming leaders, mix with the current board and get to know your fellow members.
