Session Title: The Power of Adaptation and Learning to Pivot

Monday, July 12  11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

2020 taught us a lot about the power of being adaptable and 2021 is bringing new challenges as we transition through a post-pandemic world. The power to pivot is going to become a “make or break” mechanism for companies to survive and thrive in the world after COVID-19. In this session, we will go through case examples prior to and during the pandemic from companies that thought outside of the box and turned their struggles into opportunity and profit.

Session Title: Houseplants: The Plant Parent Movement

Description: ON DEMAND

In this session, we will show you how to bring the houseplants trend to your own garden center and help you make it yours. Houseplants aren't a new thing and more than a few of us think of grandma and her African Violet she loved so much. But now they are back in the spotlight again and boy are we excited! We will explore history, trends, education, selection and how this will take us into the next generation of new gardeners and our NEXT CUSTOMER. 

This session is part of the Cultivate’21 on-demand package. Access to this package is available through separate purchase. To learn more about how to purchase the Cultivate’21 on-demand education package go to AmericanHort.org/Cultivate/On-demand.
