Agriculture

The world has more than seven billion mouths to feed. Doing so is going to take more than the sweat of our brows. It is going to take the fruit of our imaginations. Innovation. Opportunity. Technology. Science. Vision. Learn from these leading thinkers how innovation, opportunity, microbiology and leadership are reshaping the present and future of agriculture.

Recommended Sessions
Corporate Growth & Strategy

Not to overstate the obvious, but standing still is the very definition of "going nowhere." In these insightful presentations, learn from some of the nation’s most inspiring corporate leaders and executives how their companies continued to advance, reinvent themselves and overcome challenges.

Recommended Sessions
Economic Development

The world is changing. Constantly. But along with constant change comes opportunity. Join these speakers as they share their global perspective on meeting the challenges and capitalizing on the opportunities that change is presenting to bold thinkers the world over.

Recommended Sessions
Food & Beverage

Satisfy your hunger (or is that thirst?) for the freshest thinking in the world of the food and beverage industry. These presenters are experts on trends in the industry, its future, the complications it must address, and the best practices that are driving its constant growth. Expect to have your understanding of the industry expanded and to leave with plenty of new ideas to chew on.

Recommended Sessions
Innovation & Creativity

Doing things the same old way inevitably results in the "same-old, same-old." To succeed, it is imperative to innovate, to create and to embrace "what's next?" Welcome to a veritable "who's-who" of "what's next." These speakers will ignite your imagination, inspire you to think differently, and expand your understanding of what's possible and what the future might bring. (Hint: the answer is "anything.")

Recommended Sessions
International / Global Economy

Contrary to popular opinion, the world is not getting any smaller. It is, however, becoming more interconnected. An event, an invention, an idea spawned half a world away can have immediate and world-changing effects on your business. More than ever, it is necessary to cultivate a global view: of business, of culture, and of our increasing interconnectedness. Come to the ONE conference and Alltech will bring the world to you.

Recommended Sessions
Leadership

Sometimes the fortunes of a company or an organization don't rest on our abilities, on our ideas, or on our own personal dedication. Rather, sometimes the most valuable resource an organization can possess is the ability to unlock the contributions and the abilities of others. Therein lies the art of leadership. At ONE, gain insight into the leadership methods and visions of some of the most amazing leaders in their fields.

Recommended Sessions
Marketing & Communication

You've heard the expression "perception is reality?" You are invited to listen first-hand to these innovative thinkers in the realms of marketing, communications, human behavior, crisis management, branding and sales. If your chosen career or cause has anything to do with other human beings (and what career or cause doesn't?), you'll gain invaluable insight in these presentations.

Recommended Sessions
Natural Resources & Sustainability

Entrepreneurs and big thinkers are always looking for a big problem to solve. Well, there aren't many problems bigger than those faced by our planet: its limited, or imperiled, or increasingly contested natural resources and the problem of providing continued abundance in the face of scarcity. In a range of presentations, you'll be encouraged to "think bigger," and to explore long-term issues impacting the amazing and priceless blue marble we inhabit.

Recommended Sessions
Science & Human Health

While some are out to conquer the wide world out there as an entrepreneur, innovator or leader, there are other thinkers who are gleaning powerful insights from the world within each of us. Reserve a place to hear these fascinating speakers share their understandings of psychology, microbiology, nutrition, medicine and more.

Recommended Sessions
Technology & The Future

The only thing certain about the future is that it will be here before you think it will. Listen in as these innovators share their visions for the future and how next-generation technology is literally shaping the world we leave to the next generation.

The networking opportunities are invaluable. ” Dan DeGeest, General Manager, Dahmes Stainless, Inc., USA

“It’s easy to see why Alltech is succeeding and will feed the world someday. I used to think I knew the definition of networking, motivation, passion for work and passion for life. Now when I think of networking, I think of Alltech! When I think about motivation, it equals Alltech! When I think about passion for work, it’s Alltech! Passion for life and all life has to offer, I think of Dr. Pearse Lyons and Alltech!” Jeff Clines, Stand Energy Corporation, USA
