NY Giants & New York Jets All Star Defensive Lineman to Talk about CTE, Building Brands, and Overcoming Adversity
Providing personal insight as a successful business entrepreneur and former champion NFL player with CTE symptoms, Leonard A. Marshall, Jr., will be a keynote speaker at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo), at the Javits Center in New York. Taking place June 15-17, 2016, CWCBExpo NY is a trade show and conference for the medical marijuana and legalized cannabis industry.
Marshall’s keynote on Thursday, June 16, will precede the all-star thought-leadership panel on “CTE, Concussions and CBD,” which he will also moderate. As a successful athlete, businessman, medical marijuana business investor, philanthropist and family man, Marshall will tell CWCBExpo attendees what it takes to overcome challenges and obstacles to succeed.
“I am ecstatic to be participating in CWCBExpo and keynoting and moderating the all-star thought leadership panel," Marshall said. "With my background and experience in football and with CTE, I’ll be able to bring a first-hand perspective to this important topic. I look forward to addressing this issue in such a professional and well planned forum along with the other athletes.”
