Beyond Security Compliance to Market Differentiation

| | | Operations Management

In this seminar Wendi Walsh will teach attendees how to build a cannabis company that is built to last and built to scale leveraging these principles:
1. Deliberate planning
2. Diversity
3. Agile organizational model
4. Begin with the end in mind
5. Embracing risk

She hopes to leave everyone with these three take-aways:
1. Think and plan for the long and short term simultaneously
2. Embrace the energy and uncertainty of the cannabis industry
3. Leverage systems to do more – start with security systems that do more than monitor
