Why You’ll Always Find EdgeLink at C-Level Ski Day

IMG_3048The staffing business doesn’t have to be boring. We find that when you’re hard-wired to a business mentality at all times, you miss out on chances to really connect with people. That’s why we get involved with the Denver Startup week, mix with great minds at Go Code Colorado, CTA (Colorado Technology Association), numerous technology meetups and my personal favorite event: C-Level Ski  Day

This was the 5th year we were part of the C-Level/Technology Leadership Ski Day. This is by far my favorite “work event,” if you can call it that, of the year. We cosponsor Colorado Ski Day, an event arranged by ViaWest, along with a number of great names in the  Denver technology community. This is a great opportunity to show appreciation to our partners, get out and enjoy a day of skiing, mingle with other technology leaders, eat, and of course drink some beers.

EdgeLink Builds Partnerships While Cosponsoring Colorado Ski Day

Colorado Ski Day

On April 24th, 2015, EdgeLink cosponsored a Colorado Ski Day event for its many technology partners along the gorgeous slopes of Colorado’s Arapahoe basins. The outing was hosted and organized by ViaWest with the help of EdgeLink, Market Creation Group, Brainspire, SLI Global, and Vista Solutions as a way of building greater bonds with existing partners and making new connections. John Kingdeski, Manager of Contract Services at EdgeLink, led the all-day outing for the EdgeLink team and had this to say about the event.

“Part of the EdgeLink difference has always been that we build lasting relationships with our customers. Why limit those interactions? I see fun events like this as an extension of that ideal. Plus, everyone had a blast on the slopes, whether they could ski powder or not.” Continue reading
