It was a very engaging and interesting 4 days at the Syngenta Business Institute. I met 24 other superintendents who also had the same desire to learn and share information about their management styles, their operations and their experiences.
I was really impressed with the fact that this was hosted by Syngenta and we did not see or hear one thing about Syngenta products, it was strictly structured to help the 25 participants learn new items about negotiating, planning, budgeting, generational gaps and many more ideas that were thrown about the room.
The staff from Wake Forest was second to none. Truly professionals that know their business, (no pun intended) and they are very adept at engaging their students to help them to learn.
Lastly the accommodations were absolutely awesome. Wake Forest owns the Graylon Center and the grounds that surround this wonderful mansion. It is too hard to explain but it was first class to match their teaching. It is a must attend event if you are a superintendent that wants to learn and progress in his own position. Thanks Syngenta for a wonderful learning experience.
