This year’s Adams & Adams WineLand Seminar puts the spotlight on innovation and more specifically the creative mindsets and technologies that could rattle the cage and shape the future of the wine industry.
Industry experts will lead two panel discussions about rethinking wine production and marketing.
Director of the Institute for Futures Research at the University of Stellenbosch, DR MORNE MOSTERT, is an international specialist in the development of thinking for leaders and advises globally on strategic decision-making. He will investigate innovation as a means of influencing the industry’s road to vintage 2030.
Internationally renowned keynote speaker DOUGLAS KRUGER is passionate about creating proactive leaders and debunking outdated ideas. A hardcore advocate of personal discipline and committed crusader against a victimhood-mentality, his forte is dismantling self-imposed rules that can hamstring organisations.
