Todd Mitchem thought he knew about leadership and living a life on purpose. As a senior leader for one of the world’s top leadership consultancy firms for over ten years and a disruption minded entrepreneur, Todd coached and taught some of the world’s top teams from many of today’s largest companies. He thought he had witnessed it all. But it was not until he assumed a role as a leader in the emerging fast-paced legal cannabis industry that everything changed.
To understand the marijuana industry you need to imagine that the dot-com era slammed into the industrial age moving at the speed of light in a regulatory environment more severe than most others on the planet. To become a successful leader in this arena you need to harness skills that very few leaders can manage. Success takes determination, unwavering faith in the end goal, and you must think like an outlaw where there is no option of turning back. This mind-blowing disruption focused mindset is passionate and powerful, but not for the weak minded or faint of heart. To win in an industry like this, you need to forget everything you think you know about leadership and life.
In his dynamic presentations, Todd Mitchem reveals the secrets he has utilized in the cannabis industry to build one company to over 1600% percent growth as the top brand. He will share what it took to take his cannabis friendly social networking and dating app from startup to over 300,000 users in less than a year. And he will show you the skills he has used to build one of the most successful government affairs and community outreach firms in the world entirely focused on the cannabis industry, Dacorum Strategies. Most importantly, Todd teaches you what you don’t know about leadership from an industry that is the fastest growing in the world today.
When you are ready to step up to a new path of leadership, strap in, because you are about to accelerate at the speed of weed.
It's been a pleasure working with Todd over the years. Todd invests the necessary time up front to understand our business as well as the challenges our team face each and every day. This enables him to gain immediate credibility with the Leadership Team and the team attending his experiential training workshops. At the end of the day, I'm confident that Todd will not only connect the dots for the team but more importantly help them self-discover why they should be approaching their opportunity from a new perspective. He truly loves what he does and it shows each and every time he takes center stage.

Todd came to speak at our conference in advance of his book release. The presentation was powerful and even the biggest critics on our team had breakthrough moments. We felt he nailed the content and made it personal. Bravo!
