stART Your Day With…Bert Vescolani and Denver Zoo

Join the Leadership Arts Alumni Network (LAAN) for our second stART Your Day With… leadership breakfast.

This intimate event will be an opportunity to hear firsthand about strategic changes for the Denver Zoo and to get a behind-the-scenes animal experience.  We’ll start with a catered breakfast and a roundtable conversation with the Denver Zoo’s President and CEO, Bert Vescolani.  Bert will share his vision for the zoo and talk about the leadership lessons he’s gained along the way. Then, we’ll head into the zoo, still in the early hours, for an exclusive tour.

What better way to stART your day!
