CAMA Webinar 

Topic:  "New challenges need new approaches for agri-food leaders"
Presenter:  Dr. David Sparling, Professor and Chair of Agri-Food Innovation and Regulation, Ivey School of Business

Dr. David Sparling
is Professor and Chair of Agri-Food Innovation and Regulation at the Richard Ivey School of Business.

Topic Overview:  The global outlook for agriculture and food has never been more positive.  However, markets are highly volatile with changes sweeping the globe in days instead of months.  Policy environments are continually shifting and consumers are asking more from the industry – quality, health and sustainability.  Companies and industries must continually re-evaluate their approach to global markets.  Industry leaders will need new approaches to managing their businesses and to influencing policy. 

This presentation looks at the changes occurring in today’s industry and at the approaches that will be needed to be successful in the future.
