What does it take to build a winning CPG brand? It’s complicated.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, ForceBrands has teamed up with WeWork for a special event that profiles some of the industry’s most dynamic leaders as they share the lessons they’ve learned in building some of the most recognized names in food, beverage, and beauty. From heartache and loss, to resilience and strength, they’ll be the first to tell you that building great companies takes heart. And it’s not all a honeymoon phase, either.

Featured speakers include President of KIND SnacksJohn Leahy; General Manager of Oatly, Mike Messersmith; President of Supergoop!, Amanda Baldwin; VP and Head Of Flavor of Citromax Elaine Kellman; and Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer/Co-founder of Laird SuperfoodLuan Pham.

The event will be moderated by ForceBrands’ Founder and CEO, Josh Wand.
