The Biz Dev Ski & Snowboard Club is based in Denver, Colorado and was founded by Bill O’Meara in 2018. As a young sales professional back in the early 1990’s, Bill was lucky enough to be included in a ski club consisting of a handful of the top sales people and high-profile clients within the high-tech industry. His days on the mountain with this group created lasting business relationships and forever changed his perception of sales.
Bill found that during the course of a single day on the mountain, more opportunities were uncovered, more business was developed, and more lasting friendships and memories were created than the rest of the days of the month combined. Work became play, business acquaintances became life-long friends, and there was a natural and organic work / life integration. This was all because of the magic of the mountain and by combining his euphoric passion for skiing with other business professionals in his industry who shared that same passion.
Starting in 2016, Bill had thought about recreating his experience from the early 90s, and finally pulled the trigger in October 2018 with the hope of getting a dozen people to join him. By the end of the 2018/2019 season, 53 people from 35 different companies participated in the inaugural year of the Biz Dev Ski & Snowboard Club. The magic was back with a force even stronger than he remembered and the passion of the group was palpable.
Biz Dev Ski & Snowboard Club, aka “The Bizdevski’s,” has five days on the mountain scheduled in 2020 which will include food, drinks, and of course a collection of the most fun-loving characters and successful people within the commercial development industry in Colorado. A number of other events off the mountain are scheduled throughout the year, including the Warren Miller Ski Movie at the Paramount Theater in Denver and the Annual Biz Dev Ski & Snowboard Club “Field Day.”
The sky’s the limit when it comes to the power and success of this group. Please reach out if you’d like to learn more or even come join us on the mountain!
