Our Services

The People's Management helps individuals, partners, and companies seeking to grow and do business in the areas of cannabis, hemp, holistic care, and newly innovative natural extractions to develop and grow while also striving to exceed their goals. Our experience in the cannabis industry, consumer product goods (CPG), marketing, and diversity centered design and consulting helps us to develop executable strategies that speak to the overall needs of the industry and to also fit the needs of our clients. Our focused approach is essential for the successful transition from strategy, to plan, to action.


Sometimes businesses are in need of strategic support or a complete review of what's happening under its hood from a management perspective. TPM can confidently do both. By definition, "business strategy refers to the actions and decisions that a company takes to reach its business goals and be competitive in its industry. It defines what the business needs to do to reach its goals." 


As your chosen consulting or management partner, TPM knows that regardless to whether or not you're entering into the formal cannabis or hemp industries touching the flower or as a business seeking to support those who do, your business needs a plan and a strategy to successfully compete in these newly developing and highly regulated spaces. We are poised and ready to work with just about all businesses, individuals, and entities because our consultants are focused and positioned to help you to enter, grow, build, partner or simply find a way to make a positive and lasting impact in the cannabis, hemp, or hemp-derived industries. 


The People's Management was developed to not only bridge the gap between the formal and informal but also to support the voices, ideals, and needs of minorities including people of color, womxn, LGBTQ+ people, veterans, and individuals with disabilities who are also representative of both the legacy and formal markets. We work with diverse communities, research institutions, professional organizations, and private businesses to get legislation done the right way because we know that many living within these intersections have often been hit the hardest by the war on drugs.

TPM provides expert consulting and support that helps to address the skills, resource, capital and formal support gaps that those who represent the majority often do not have to contend with while entering or being apart of the formal landscape. We have developed and partnered with diverse entities to draft and drive formal legislation, white papers, and policies that address the need to federally legalize cannabis for reasons that have been and continue to directly impact marginalized people and the communities in which they live, work, and seek to thrive.


Although highly regulated and in many ways new, "a National Restaurant Association survey found that 3 in 4 chefs named CBD- and cannabis-infused food as a hot trend in 2019." The People's Management (TPM) and our trained industry consultants are focused on addressing the needs of a growing cannabis and CBD infusing culinary market. In a highly competitive and artistic space, culinarians are constantly working to remain true to their talents and innovations in ways that speak best to their art and the needs of the market. We are excited to provide expert level consulting services to support restaurateurs, chefs, universities, and companies seeking to invest in the development of the cannabis and hemp-derived gastronomical landscape.


When it comes to design, branding, marketing, and experiential, The People's Management consulting team has over 20+ years of experience working to strategically position historical and highly competitive brands across both horizontal and vertical markets successfully.  As a consulting mix of people of color, womxn, disabled, and LGBTQ+ identified individuals, we understand the importance of working and partnering with our clients to tell their stories through their eyes and in ways that help them to reach their target audience. We strive to maintain their authenticity while also celebrating their reasoning and inspiration for which they were birthed.

So, whether your goal is to reach B2B, B2C, or entities that fall within the intersection, our creative design, marketing, and experiential consultants will work with you to develop or re-imagine your brand identity to penetrate diverse markets in ways that only truly experienced and legacy consultants can.
