2021 Virtual Seminar Series

The Minnesota Pork Board recognizes the importance of continuous growth and development both personally and professionally. Cue: the Virtual Seminar Series.

Starting in March 2021, Minnesota Pork will host a monthly speaker series featuring world-class speakers who will share their expertise providing perspective, insights, and best practices in areas such as organizational health, leadership development, public policy, sustainability, and consumer data insights, among others. Each month, a specified speaker will join via Live video stream for a forty-five-minute presentation followed by Q and A. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join in conversation with speakers following the session.

Each session will be recorded and distributed to all registered individuals, so even if you cannot join every session live, register today and all session materials will be sent to you following the seminar to view at your convenience.

Each seminar session will last approximately one hour, from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. CT on its scheduled date. The current speaker lineup includes:
