Name badges are required for this event. 

Speakers

STEVE GILLILAND

IT IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT

More than ever, people must rely on collective strength, think differently and find ways to make themselves stronger and more complete. How you respond to challenges is founded on your mindset. This relevant and timely keynote speech reveals how to produce a specific mindset that directly impacts your behavior in different situations. It shows the keys to solving the problem instead of accepting it and shares how to readjust your thinking and react in any situation to impact your success positively. It’s time to let go of it is what it is. It’s time to embrace a new mindset: it is what you make it!

TONY REPANICH

CANNABIS BANKING UNLOCKED

Although Kansas is one of only a few states where there is currently no legal access to adult-use or medical cannabis, policy efforts are happening at the state and federal level that could change market conditions in the blink of an eye.
