Lead to Succeed in a Volatile Business Environment 

Learn from leaders across the controlled-environment specialty crop spectrum.

Leadership in today’s business environment requires getting comfortable with change and complexity. Behind every next normal is another next normal. As a primary leader in your organization, you are the guiding hand that helps your team successfully navigate through whatever comes their way. You set the tone. You determine the direction your team needs to follow to remain productive, viable, and successful. Being a leader in any organization can be tough — GROW Executive Summit has you covered. 

As you turn your sights back to growing your business and deciding on your next move, GROW Executive Summit can provide you with the business and technology solutions and strategies you need to lead your team forward with confidence and purpose.

You will head back to your operation with tactics for running a sustainable, profitable business, along with innovative ideas and new perspectives on controlled-environment agriculture.
