    Please join us as Christine Hurt, CFO at Ayers Saint Gross, discusses how the implementation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan has transformed this Baltimore-based design firm.

    This event is back by popular demand! Our Sixth Annual Power Networking Event!

    In addition to enjoying a buffet breakfast, participants will have two minutes, in a round-table format, to present their expertise, explain their vision for collaboration, and describe the type of business opportunities that interest them most. After each two minute round, we will rotate, giving each participant an opportunity to meet nearly half the people in the room. This format is a proven technique for uncovering partner relationships between complementary disciplines.

    More Meaningful Networking!

    We will invite the participants to either share their ideal client scenario or describe the profile of an ideal referral source or Center of Influence (COI). Many of us have built our practices through successfully marketing to Centers of Influence, however we do not necessarily see ourselves as "COI's". Most professional services practitioners have the ability to become invaluable and generous connectors within the community. To achieve this, however, it requires vision, discipline and coordination. The end goal is a smarter and more sustainable method of business development.

    Get ready to generate valuable relationships in this unique forum.

    Register Early as this event sells out every year.

    Please join us as Gina Dubbe and Dr Leslie Apgar, share with us how a ob-gyn and an engineer turned entrepreneur became best friends and embarked on a cannabis enterprise that paid off big.

    With equal parts humor, humility, and resolve, they discuss their challenge and triumphs. They will explore their path to a wildly successful cannabis dispensary, launching a product line, tackling the unexpected and meaningful issues they've uncovered, and walking ahead with their heads - and heels - held high thanks to the lessons they've learned along the way.

She is also the Co-Founder and Medical Director of Greenhouse Wellness, a medical cannabis dispensary, as well as Co-Founder of Blissiva, a female focused cannabis line.
