TELLURIDE, Colorado (June 7, 2016) – This summer, Telluride Ski & Golf will kick off a series of multi-day Leadership Development events aimed at managers, business leaders, executives, entrepreneurs and those looking to grow professionally. The first series will take place August 21 – 24, 2016, with subsequent events taking place in October and December of 2016, and January, February and June of 2017.

“While best known as a top ski resort and host of summer festivals, Telluride is becoming a center for professional development, thought-leadership and networking,” said Matt Windt, vice president of sales & marketing for Telluride Ski Resort. “We’re thrilled to introduce this new programming and know participants will be inspired by Telluride and leave with the skills, insights and tools needed to excel both personally and professionally.”

Facilitating the Leadership Development Series is Trish Day, a leadership and development coach based out of Denver, Colorado, specializing in personal and organizational growth. As the lead facilitator for CTE Leadership Strategies, a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach and member of the John Maxwell Team she combines evidence-based tools with a customized curriculum approach to help her clients identify, leverage and maximize their natural strengths.

“There is so much to do in Telluride that compliments the development experience,” said Trish Day. “Our minds need comfortable space and offline time when we are working on ourselves and having the right environment is so important. I can’t think of a better place to enjoy a “whole-person” approach to growth and renewal.”
