Last summer, Calypso Enterprises was awarded 1 of the 25 coveted grower/processor permits as part of the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program and was charged with being operational within 6 months.  Calypso completed a 52,000 square foot brownfield development new construction, notably through an Erie winter, wrote countless plans, standard operating procedures and job descriptions, hired 20 people and opened its doors on June 12th.  All from a Project Management Office of one person...

Laura Guncheon, Vice President, PMO of Erie Management Group, will provide an overview of the trials and tribulations of project management in warp speed as well as working within a framework of a yet federally illegal industry.  Like getting a corporate bank account and a 401k plan – seems pretty standard, yah?  Try again.  

Guncheon will share success and failures, as well as lessons learned while providing insight into the fastest growing industry in the world.   As you all are wondering, Calypso will not be providing the brownies for dessert #Sorry

Laura Guncheon is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh (H2P!) as well as Mercyhurst (then College) University, a resident of Erie for +20 years and enjoys a good spreadsheet (the more complex the formulas, the better), a daily crossword puzzle and the zen provided by riding her lawn tractor.
