The Success Summit for all ages

What is GlenX and why do you keep hearing about it? GlenX is something akin to Aspen Institute, but here in Glenwood Springs and without all the money and power behind it … yet. GlenX stands for Glenwood Springs and the X number of people who live here, with X amount of inspiration to change the world and X amount of love for our community. Our collective mission is to inspire and enable positive impact in the community.

Our GlenX endeavors range from the Super School project for rethinking education, the monthly Glenapalooza event to support downtown businesses, the annual Roaring Fork Career Fair to engage high school students, the newly formed Innovation Lab to facilitate startups of positive impact, and the annual Success Summit happening Saturday at the Jeannie Miller Theatre at Glenwood Springs High School. This event is being presented by Alpine Bank and the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association.

So why come to this Success Summit on Saturday? Here are the top three reasons:

1. Unique entertainment by talents and wonders far and wide. An eclectic mix of experiences will resonate with anyone of any age, including immersive experiences with virtual reality goggles, mind and body yoga, experiential art, demos of different forms of dance, a cultural labyrinth, tai chi and qigong, green screen photos, and more … and this is just the Experience Hall. Food is included, with a choice of yummy ethnic cuisine experiences that will make any belly jump for joy. We also will have amazing presenters who will provoke invigorating ideas, tickle our happy hearts and expand a self realization of our potential.

2. Inspiration and self improvement unlike anything else. The goal of the summit is to inspire and engage on the topics of success, happiness, leadership and fulfillment. This year’s lineup includes: philanthropist Jim Calaway speaking on legacy and fulfillment; a business leader from Mongolia, Mergen Chuluun, on Ignite Your Networking (who is also my older, slightly better looking and drastically smarter brother); local inspirational speaker Michelle Lefebvre on happiness, educator Aaron Garland on IQ — the Intelligence Quotient; local leaders Christina Brusig and Drew Gorgey on EQ — Emotional Intelligence, and author and business leader Bob Vanourek on XQ — The X Factor to success. We also will have local dancers from the art center, a local musician and a poetry slam.

3. Community involvement with like-minded leaders and visionaries. We seek to unite our community and help one another thrive. This is at the essence of GlenX. We are here to help one another succeed and thrive. Let’s help each other get through this crazy thing called life together. Life can sometimes be such a jackass, but then things like this happen sometimes that help us connect with one another in a meaningful way and give us the opportunity to have high hopes together.
