TUCKER, Ga. – Donnie Smith, chief executive officer of Tyson Foods, will give his views on effective financial management in times of volatility and shifting consumer trends during the US Poultry & Egg Association’s Financial Management Seminar.
“We are looking forward to hearing Donnie Smith, CEO and president of Tyson Foods Inc., provide his perspective on effective financial management in these volatile times for our industry,” said John Starkey, president of USPOULTRY.
Scheduled for June 25-27 in Hilton Head, SC, the seminar will address key issues such as economic conditions, rising fuel costs, taxes and consumer trends and current and future financial challenges facing the poultry industry.
“The current economic environment has made financial management increasingly complex. Financial managers cannot react to today’s challenges with yesterday’s knowledge. It is important that management remains current on best practices and methods to stay abreast of the ever-changing financial management responsibility,” said Program Chairman, Steve Jurek, GNP Company.
Other topics on the program include Effective Time Management / Team Member Engagement; Global Poultry Trends; A Washington Update for the Poultry Industry; An Analyst’s Perspective of the Poultry Industry; Export Markets Update; Enterprise Risk Management; a Regulatory Update, an Economic Forecast, and a series of small group breakout sessions.
