Syngenta Business Institute back in person, applications open

By |  April 5, 2022 0 Comments

The Syngenta Business Institute (SBI) is now accepting applications for its professional development program for superintendents. The program this year is in person at the Graylyn International Conference Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., Dec. 6-9.

“Two years of virtual SBI certainly exceeded our expectations, but we are really excited about the idea of being back in person for the 2022 program,” Stephanie Schwenke, turf market manager for Syngenta, said. “We will continue monitoring updates from the government and health authorities, and will be fully prepared to transition the program online via Zoom if needed.”

SBI is partnering with Wake Forest University Executive Education for the program curriculum, which features educational courses designed to teach superintendents critical industry skills.

Upon completion, participants will earn 1.5 GCSAA education points. Program topics include:

  • Work/life balance
  • Negotiations
  • Financial management
  • Tools for managing employees
  • Leading across cultures and generations

Superintendents will be able to build valuable connections with industry professionals during various networking sessions.

“We feel that the intangible benefits that result when superintendents can informally share experiences, knowledge and successes are much greater when they can meet face-to-face,” Ken Middaugh, faculty director for SBI at Wake Forest University, said.

The program will have limited class sizes to establish a strong interaction among participants and instructors. Attendees must be employed as a superintendent, director of agronomy or at an equal level in the U.S. to be eligible.

Candidates must fill out an application which includes a short essay on why they should attend and submit it online by 3 a.m. EST on Aug. 23 (midnight PDT on Aug. 22).
