Mountain Mayhem: Jones Symposium

Since 2009, JonesTrading, an international equity trading company with offices around the world, including one at Aspen Highlands, has held its Global Symposium here in Aspen. Asset managers and traders travel from all over for a curated weekend of events including panel discussions on the global economy and state of affairs with the current administration. This year’s Symposium took place from Feb. 23 to 26, set at The St. Regis, the Aspen Mountain Club, the slopes of Aspen Snowmass and a closing night extravaganza at Belly Up.

Keynote speaker Jeremy Bloom, the only dual-sport athlete to ski in the Olympics and be drafted into the NFL, and now co-founder of marketing software company Integrate, captivated the audience at Belly Up, speaking of his journey from student athlete at the University of Colorado to now CEO of Integrate. He emphasized the importance of teamwork, humility, drive and looking forward as secrets to his success. He shared perspectives on goals and life including his “48 Hour Rule” that plays a part in moving on from failure or disappointment — after a shortcoming, he allows himself to dwell on them for that amount of time and no more, then carries on without looking back.

Afterward, the club opened up to the public for a sold out show with ’80s cover band the Spazmatics, an energetic denouement to a lively weekend.
