Speaking about the “Changing Face of Cannabis Culture” on Thursday, June 21, 2018.
Derek has crafted the message and shaped the story of leading companies and winning political campaigns across North America. He founded Revolution Strategy in 1998 and grew it into the award-winning strategic communications agency it is today. He is the Co-creator of “Real Houses of…” a television series showcasing some of the most interesting homes in North America and the personalities behind them. In 2015, he launched Civilized, a premium, multi-platform, digital media and lifestyle brand that embraces and highlights cannabis culture, reflecting the millions of adults who choose to enjoy cannabis as part of a balanced lifestyle. Rooted in Canada’s east coast but spending his time between Los Angeles and Saint John, he’s learned to surround himself with really great people and get out of the way. Derek loves a good story, a witty sense of humour and authentic personalities.
