CEO, AUTHOR, SPEAKER
Todd Mitchem is an entrepreneur, seasoned senior leader, speaker, and author. Along with his passion for running companies and developing new successful entrepreneurial projects, Todd delivers presentations that guide audiences on the power of transformational change, collaboration, and communication to solve the biggest challenges facing business and society today. As a senior leader, Todd has guided some of the top brands in the world in the area of re-structure, innovation, cooperation, and business development.
Starting in 2013, he was invited to guide companies in the emerging cannabis industry as they built new and hyper-fast moving start-up companies. His successes include: helping develop the largest brand in the space (over 1,600% growth in 12 months), and building the world’s first global social network unique to the cannabis consumer which grew from zero users to over 300k in less than a year. Todd also built the world’s fist cannabis job fair after legalization called, “CannaSearch” which saw over 3400 job hopefuls who filled over 1000 new jobs in Colorado alone. He also leads the industry as the first person to speak to Attorneys General on the need for standards in marijuana tracking, production, and business leadership.
When not speaking, Mitchem runs successful government affairs and community outreach initiatives. Todd also loves to write. Besides his articles in publications like Entrepreneur, he published the book YOU, DISRUPTED Seizing the life you want by shaking, breaking and challenging everything. Todd is also active in the media and has been featured in Entrepreneur, Inc, LA Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Financial Times, CNBC and more.
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!
