Wana Brands CEO Takes the Stage at Global Events Geared Toward Cannabis Investors and Industry Professionals

Nancy Whiteman, CEO, will share perspectives on innovation, brand-building

Boulder, Colo. (Nov. 30, 2021) — This December, Wana Brands CEO Nancy Whiteman will participate as a speaker at industry-leading cannabis conferences, including Cowen Cannabis Conference (12/1) and GCI Cannabis Brands & Retail Conference (12/7-12/9).

At these conferences, Whiteman will share her perspectives with cannabis professionals and investors on what it takes to build an international cannabis brand, from harnessing the power of technology to innovating next-generation cannabis products to identifying growth opportunities in a complex marketplace.

Over the past 11 years, Whiteman led Wana’s growth from a scrappy Boulder-based company to a leading international cannabis edibles brand with a presence in 13 US and 9 Canadian markets, all without taking on debt or investors. Strategic, thoughtful organic growth has been key to Wana’s success.

Upcoming speaking engagements:

Cowen Cannabis Conference (virtual: Wed., Dec. 1 at 10:00am ET): Whiteman joins Canopy Growth Corporation CEO David Klein and Acreage Holdings CEO Pete Caldini in a virtual fireside chat on growth strategies amid a time of rapid change within the industry and larger ecosystem.

GCI Cannabis Brands & Retail Conference (virtual: Wed., Dec. 8 at 4:00pm GMT): Whiteman and other industry leaders share their thoughts on the “Innovating Products & Developing Unique Cannabis CPGs for Specific Need States” panel, with an eye toward the tastes of tomorrow’s cannabis consumers. Whiteman will highlight how advanced technology informed development of the Wana Optimals gummies line designed for specific use cases and will discuss the future of cannabis research & development. The GCI Cannabis Brands & Retail Conference is part of GCI Virtual Summit for Global Leaders in Cannabis & Psychedelics, made up of seven conferences featuring hundreds of thought leaders from across the globe.
