From the WomenGrow site: The 2017 cannabis conference circuit is already heading full swing into our calendars, quickly filling them up with events all over the world. One of those events you don't want to miss is coming to Denver Colorado at the beginning of February.
On February 1st through the 3rd, Women Grow are putting on their 2017 Leadership Summit in downtown Denver Colorado. The three day event is promised to be packed with insightful, TED-style talks and some of the most intense networking and educational panels the industry has to offer. The lightning talks will take place at the iconic Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and Friday’s break-out sessions will be held at the Curtis Hotel.
From the site: “Join us at this year’s Leadership Summit to transform your cannabis industry career. After three days of lightning talks, panels, and social events, you’ll leave with meaningful connections and vital industry knowledge that will ignite success in the year to come.”
The lightning talks, which take place Thursday, February 2nd, are TED-style talks given by leading industry experts and professionals including Tracy Ryan, CEO and Founder of CannaKids & Saving Sophie, Amy Dilullo, Vice President of CMH Brands/Willie’s Reserve, Cassandra Farrington, CEO & Co-Founder at Marijuana Business Daily, and so many more.

On Friday February 3rd, the Breakout Sessions take place. These are informative panels focused on everything from The Art of Female Leadership in the Cannabis Industry with Lilly Colley of Incredibles, Sara Gullickson with Dispensary Permits, and Diane Czarkowski of Canna Advisors, to Creating A Powerful Team with Maureen McNamara, Founder & Chief Facilitator of Cannabis Trainers, and Kara Bradford from Viridian Staffing.

No matter how you slice it, 2017 is going to be a positive year for the cannabis industry. Conferences play a huge role in creating powerful networks made up of passionate individuals who, for the most part, all have the same goals in mind. The Women Grow Summit is on our list of conferences not to miss.
