BDA/Denver will make it easier for all those people who have been driving "all the way" from Denver to attend BDA's low cost, high-impact classes for creative and digital professionals and entrepreneurs. Their unique in-person programs range from Android and iOS mobile app development to filmmaking, web design, UI/UX and digital marketing. Designed to be accessible and practical, most of their classes are one evening or one full day, but they also offer more in-depth, week-long Certificate programs.

With over 300 events per year, thousands of creative digital professionals and small-business owners have taken BDA's classes since 2004. BDA's classes are known for emphasizing practical skills taught by seasoned industry professionals (not academics). Their course offerings have expanded beyond the "creative digital arts" since 2004 to include marketing and business development as well as growth industries like mobile app development UI/UX design. Earlier this year BDA launched it's BDA OnDemand service that provides instant online access to many of their popular classes and workshops.

Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: DaVinci Institute, 511 E. South Boulder Road, Louisville, CO 80027

Web Site:

Business owners - as disparate and far-reaching in focus as they may be – share a common goal: to grow capital and their businesses. While there are many ways to achieve that goal, there is one strategy that often gets over looked: owning and driving a company’s strategic branding and positioning. This responsibility falls squarely in the laps of business executives, but it is one that, for some, gets lost or misunderstood.

Michael Doyle, Denver-based nationally known expert in branding and positioning companies for growth, has it down to a science – a seven-step program, as a matter of fact – and has made a career of helping business executives become their own brand champions.

Doyle’s presentation, “The 7 Secrets of a Brand Champion,” will cover:

  • The 7 SINS of branding to avoid
  • The 7 SECRETS of becoming a Brand Champion
  • Examples of what works and what doesn’t
  • Straight forward explanations and myth busting
  • Tangible take-aways
  • An opportunity to ask Doyle your own branding questions

EVENT: Startup Junkie Underground

TIME: 6:30pm-8:30pm

LOCATION: DaVinci Institute, 511 E. South Boulder Road, Louisville, CO 80027
