All There For CCoE Worksop
"All There For CCoE Worksop"
THE second Cane Centre of Excellence (CCoE) Workshop was held from 2-5 September 2013 at Ubombo estate in Swaziland. For this round all the senior agricultural leadership from AB Sugar Group, AB Sugar China and Illovo Sugar Limited were represented, making 39 delegates in total (PICTURED).
The AB Sugar operations and technical director Ben Hackett and Illovo Sugar’s new managing director Gavin Dalgleish and its new group operations director John Hulley represented the respective executive leadership.
The aim of this second workshop was to establish clarity and a way forward for the CCoE and to update delegates on a number of initiatives undertaken since the inaugural workshop in 2012. The event facilitators Debbie Jenssen and Ben Hackett, together with the group agricultural performance manager Geoff Trott, put in a lot of effort to ensure the participants were clear on the goals and that the basis of the vision and objectives was thus developed.
A dedicated resource will be established in the near future to lead the Cane Centre of Excellence, which is mandated to develop new science that will contribute to the technology pipeline enhancing the future sustainable competitiveness of sugarcane agriculture across the AB Sugar cane businesses.
