Event Description

Food and Agriculture Business Seminar

Registration for 2016 is now open. Please register on the registration website.

June 5-7, 2016 at the University of Guelph

The Food Institute developed the Food and Agriculture Business Seminar to bring together a diverse group of current and emerging leadership in the industry to collectively examine trends and issues in today’s global marketplace.

By working together in strategically dynamic groups, participants benefit from each other’s expertise as they critically examine real cases and interact with the executives of the featured businesses in a non-competitive environment.

The seminar’s cases explore shifting roles of government, food security, consumer perspective and developing markets in real scenarios that top industry businesses and organizations have faced. Attendees are expected to have studied the cases prior to the event, and are organized into diverse discussion groups facilitated by subject matter experts during their attendance. Within these discussion groups, attendees challenge the issues and relevant points amongst themselves in preparation for the open
discussion, led by the case study creator and an executive of the guest organization.

Participants leave with a new perspective, strategic networks and critical skills to better serve their own business and the food and agriculture industry as a whole.
