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.
