Program & Online Event
Delegates heard from a diverse range of speakers, both in person and via livestream. This year we welcomed International keynote Founder and Executive Director of American Botanical Council, Mark Blumenthal and his collaborative presentation on Australian Black Garlic with Tracey Hogan from Transchem. Futurist Paul Higgins showed how innovation is in part looking for opportunities in uncertainty that others cannot see and challenged delegates with Innovative thinking. Other keynotes included, Ilias Babalis General Manager of Sales at Chemist Warehouse (sponsored by Life Space Group) with What’s New in the Warehouse and International Keynote James Bauly, Chief Development Officer of Hologram Sciences on Scaling Personalised Nutrition Through Novel Innovation Approaches (Sponsored by DSM).
