Mary’s List and BrightTALK Join Forces for Cannabis Content
BrightTALK’s mission is to bring professionals and businesses together to learn and grow. Mary’s List shares this mission, and we hope we can continue to normalize the conversation around working in cannabis by highlighting the amazing people we get to meet every single day.
Working in the cannabis industry comes with its own challenges and growing pains, and we need more platforms like BrightTALK that want to educate professionals and businesses instead of shutting their voices down.
Going forward, we’ll produce talks from all sorts of entrepreneurs, business owners, executives, freelancers, professionals and creatives from the cannabis industry on the Mary’s List BrightTALK channel.
We’re not wasting any time getting started either. Tomorrow, we’re hosting Trailblazing Women Changing the Face of Cannabis with three back-to-back-to-back talks for everyone to dig into. Check out the talks below. Make sure you create a profile on BrightTALK to access our talks or any of the thousands of other talks on the platform (IT’S FREE!). We can’t wait to see you tomorrow!
