Training the Next Generation of Food Industry Managers

Mon, Sep 12, 2022 · 2:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

What separates the average and the exceptional food and beverage company? A key part of the answer may lie in how leaders within the organization are trained. Traditional management theory would suggest that companies should focus relentlessly on process and technology. But as the COVID-19 pandemic showed us, these metrics alone often don’t lead to long-term sustainable success.

To achieve outstanding business performance, a new model is needed – one that incorporates the science of traditional KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and the art of manager development through KBIs (Key Behavioral Indicators).

In this FI-exclusive webinar, Jake Rivers, Proaction International’s VP of Operations, will share how Proaction International is helping their clients achieve outsized ROIs by using their integrated approach to performance improvement. In addition, Craig Young, Nellson Neutraceutical’s Senior Director of Operations, will share a first-hand account of the success achieved through the new manager development program.

Who should watch this webinar?
• Food and beverage manufacturing companies
• CPG companies
• Agricultural food companies
• Ingredient companies

Learn about Proaction International's new model of manager training and how it can improve business performance for any F&B company.
