2019 Keynote Speaker
David Hollinrake, Syngenta region director and North America president, Syngenta Seeds, LLC will serve as keynote speaker for Triad BioNight 2019.
Syngenta’s progress and future promise is a global icon for the importance of innovation and sustainability for critical issues including feeding the world. Clearly, Syngenta is a key contributor to not only North Carolina’s Ag leadership but to the Piedmont Triad as the second largest concentration of Ag Biotech activity in the state. 11% of the Ag Biotech workforce is located in our region with much credit due to Syngenta. They are considered a top life sciences employer in the region. Gaining insight from Syngenta’s success would be meaningful to this statewide and regional audience.
