 Registration is closed for this event
Dr Warren Parker presents the opportunities and challenges confronting the primary sector.

Warren’s address will provide an overview on the opportunities and challenges confronting the primary sector – especially the pastoral and forestry sectors in Northland. He will discuss the implications of climate change, and meeting environmental limits; and provide examples of technology, tools and systems that can help businesses get on the ‘front foot’ to meet these challenges.

A Northlander at heart, Warren has had a successful career in science and innovation, including being Chief Executive of of Landcare Research and Scion; and a director of several technology companies. Currently a director of Farmlands Cooperative, Quayside Holdings and Predator Free 2050 Ltd; and Chair of the Ministerial Advisory Group for Forestry, his strength is providing a strategic perspective on opportunities that can help businesses meet their aspirations while also fulfilling their environmental and community obligations.
