Educating the industry. That is the approach one grower is taking towards this year’s PMA’s virtual Fresh Summit Show, starting today.

This new format also still allows product demonstrations to take place even when we cannot meet in person.”

For Duda, that supply chain includes its Dandy Super Sweet Corn that it’s currently harvesting in Georgia but will transition to Florida in early to mid-November. “Hurricane Sally has created some challenges due to the amount of rain received in the region.

“Since coronavirus struck, the number of children out of school around the world soared past 1.3 billion. It is a toll of wasted potential and missed opportunity that is a tragedy not just for those children, but for each and every one of us,” said U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Virtual Leadership Summit Examines the Reinvention and Convergence of Healthcare, Corporate America and Higher Education

“These crises have revealed the fragility of our systems in real time,” said Glenn Llopis, President of GLLG and Founder of the Leadership in the Age of Personalization movement. “Healthcare, Corporate America and Higher Education can no longer be viewed in silos anymore. Each sector needs the others. How we respond to this convergence will determine what our collective future will look like. We can’t expect people to change their mindset, attitude and behavior if the outdated standards remain the same.”

Over 40 speakers will discuss the collapse of standardization and why outdated systems and processes can no longer scale in today’s more personalized world. Speakers will also discuss the most immediate reinvention requirements across healthcare, corporate America and higher education centered on the following core themes:
