The Denver Council on Foreign Relations  is committed to heightening public awareness and building understanding of contemporary and emerging international issues. In doing so, DCFR seeks a better informed Colorado regarding the global issues that impact us all. We do so by hosting a range of events, forums, and discussions, all open to the public and funded by our members designed to help the citizens of  Metro Denver gain access to experts on national and international issues.

​​​​​​​We look forward to seeing you at a DCFR event soon!

Whether it be our speakers series, conferences & programs, or fellowships, we cannot enhance our efforts without community support. You may, of course, specify a particular program (speakers, scholarship, etc.) or leave the allocation to your Board, all of whom serve DCFR pro bono

Thank you in advance for supporting our efforts!

Grounded by her love of nature and community, Denver-based Susan Morrice lives to create positive change in the world. As an experienced geologist, explorer, entrepenuer and dealmaker, Susan is renowned for her down to earth approach to all aspects of business. She has a passion for the protection of the environment and a vision of uncovering the true potential of everyone with whom she meets. It is this New Educo Business Model at the core of her Companies that has attracted leaders of the UAE to partner with the Country of Belize in an unprecedented global partnership throughout the entire region.

Ms. Morrice was born and raised in Belfast, Ireland and holds an MoD degree in Geology from Trinity College Dublin. She is a founding member of Belize Natural Energy (BNE), International Natural Energy (INE), CHx Capital, and XJet Worldwide. BNE has become a global oil industry beacon that has made a real difference in the country of Belize. It was through Susan's gift of exploration, and derstanding of the power of untapped human potential that she was able to find oil where it was believe by all of the Majors in the oil industry that there was none. Not only did Susan and her BNE team find oil in Belize, they found it on the first well which is unheard of. BNE just celebrated ten years of production and over ten-million barrels of oil, and is the #1 revenue generator in the country.

Susan has applied this same Holistic Educo Business Model to her investment in XJet in Denver, a 7-star service private jet company that is continually ranked among the best and most elite in Private Aviation services. XJet has also granted the coveted license in New Dubai Airport beating all the long established industry players and XJet is rapidly expanding into Europe, including London, and into the Middle East, including the UAE.

She was most recently awarded the "AAPG Presidential Award for Exemplary Service" in recognition of her exceptional service to the geoscience profession and AAPG. She is continually recognized for her contributions including just this year the Denver Business Journal's "Top Women in Energy" and the CoBiz Magazine's "Top Women Owned Companies". These are just two of the numerous acknowledgements and awards that she has recieved in recognition of her contributions world-wide.

Most recently, Susan and the BNE team were awarded the highly competitive and prestigious 2017 Global "GetEnergy" Educational Award for the educational model that is at the core of the company. It is with great pride that Susan and the BNE team received this award, as this holstic educational system is the keystone of the company's success.
