"Connecting with your peers is such a powerful way to learn, to understand that everyone has some of the same issues (and they are solvable), and to develop a network of professionals who can assist now and in the future."

Fred Storck

Retired Vice President of Sales, Beyond Meat

“In my many years of mentoring and working with founders and key executives in the Natural and Organic industry, one thing has become crystal clear to me: leaders learn the most by connecting with each other about how to overcome obstacles. There is clearly a need for this on a national level.”
