The course was very good and gave us a lot of information and a lot to think about. Cannabis, Hemp, CBD products, medicinal uses, these are all up and coming industries but completely new to banking, accounting, cost accounting, tracking seed to store.


The presenters were very organized and thorough. They used the poll questions to learn about the attendees - a mature way to communicate. Thank you


This was an excellent and well-presented program by someone who is not only very knowledgeable about the subject but who can explain things very clearly. I've listened to hundreds of presentations over a 45+ year career and this one was extremely well done


The speaker presented the complexities of the subject matter in a clear, digestible manner with energy and professionalism that I am grateful for. I have a lot to think about regarding my future professional endeavors.


Incredibly interesting and a bit overwhelming! This is a wonderful overview of all things to consider from bookkeeping and accounting to Legal and Tax, with the marketing element also highlighted.


Great webinar. Highly engaging, informative, and well-paced. The presenters were awesome! Thank you for providing clarity in a grey-matter area.
