Next month, Novozymes will host the “Effective Fermentation Management” workshop, the latest of the company’s “Industry Excellence Workshops” initiative. The seminar will be held on July 15 and 16 (Wednesday-Thursday) at the Hilton Garden Inn in Council Bluffs, IA.

Industry Excellence Workshops are interactive, business-focused training sessions that go beyond off-the-shelf training packages. Specifically focused on the growth and development of your business, these training workshops are based on customer feedback, and are designed to help you achieve operational and management excellence.

Together we will explore individual participant and plant needs, connect to uncover challenges your teams face, identify and test solutions, and help each person bring home tools that are real, immediate, and actionable.

These workshops will help you accelerate growth and development for consistent, efficient operations that support your corporate culture, growth and operational goals.

These workshops are offered exclusively to Novozymes’ customers throughout the year. Contact your Novozymes account manager or technical service scientist to express your interest and find out if they are right for your plant.
