Resilience and ability to ‘bounce back’ is the theme of animal nutrition company Alltech’s 2010 European lecture tour.
Speakers on the 39-stop tour, taking place from February 1 (Dublin) to February 12 (Casablanca, Morocco), will explore how agriculture and the animal production industry can bounce back from an arduous year of high raw material prices and low profits and bounce forward to a year of growth and profitability.
Forum for solutions
“The Bounce Back lecture series will focus on how to succeed in life and in business – it is a forum for solutions. We invite attendees to bounce back from the challenges of the past year and to bounce forward with optimism, with innovative technologies and with a fresh approach. We also want to discuss how we as an industry need to bounce back, satisfy consumer demands, and put ourselves on more solid footing for the future through branding,” said the company’s president, Dr Pearse Lyons.
The programme will present nutritional and business strategies that companies can employ to ensure strong earnings and to increase profitability in 2010. Industry concerns such as an ever-increasing demand for traceability and the inability to secure consistent raw materials will be addressed.
Building sustainable teams through the training and development of employees, strategy formulation as well as establishing progressive management systems will be explored.
For the first time, the tour will feature panel discussions which will invite guests to submit questions in advance. Questions can range from business strategies such as better staff training as well as fundamental nutritional strategies.
