Celebrating The Summer Solstice in A Castle
A BIG Thank You to my friend Kevin Kaye and the Katalyst Group for putting together an UNBELIEVABLE event with the Orion3 Family (OrionCore Members and Corporate Members) last night at The Tribune Tower!!

2022 Orion3 Executive Leadership Conference!
The 1st Orion3 Executive Leadership Conference was the Best program/event that we put together.
Alan Johnson, Robert Blackwell Jr. and Joe Del Preto are 3 incredible people from 3 completely different backgrounds who have 3 difference stories and perspectives.
They are the epitome of "Authentic Leadership" and that being REAL works in business!
The, 1st ever, Orion3 Holiday Party last night was a blast!

It was great getting the OrionCore Members and Corporate Members together for a night to celebrate what we did last year and start 2023!

Immigrant Experience in Corporate America
OrionCann: "The Business of Cannabis"
It's almost impossible to get Shaan Kapoor and Brian Ward on the same date in the same state.
Shaan is the COO/CFO of RNBW Cannabis, which is completely disrupting the industry in the West Coast. I'm not going to say it on #Linkedin, but Shaan can tell you why RNBW is going to change the entire trajectory of the Cannabis Industry over the next 3 years .
I know a lot of executives in the Cannabis Industry, and I can say Shaan is one of the most passionate and the most well rounded executives I know! He started his career in corporate/investment banking, then was a Director of Mergers and Acquisitions at Green Thumb Industries (GTI) before becoming CFO/COO of RNBW.
