MY DAY WITH BILL GATES -
How to Leverage Ag Technology to Drive Global Prosperity
The founder of AGRI-TREND, Robert Saik, was one of 15 people from around the world invited to Seattle in early May of this year to discuss technology with Bill Gates.
Saik was tapped by Gates to share his views on how modern farming technology can be leveraged to feed a growing population in an environmentally sustainable way. With Gates and his advisors, Saik shared case studies and success stories from his experience working with farmers from Canada to Uganda.
Rob Saik is “an educator, entrepreneur, innovator, visionary, consultant, advisor…” and more.
There are a few speakers that can combine their passion of agriculture with deep business experience and talk about them in a humorous, energetic and impactful way...Rob Saik is one of those guys.
Beginning his career on a mixed farm in Alberta, Rob has founded many businesses including the Agri-Trend Group which is now part of Trimble Navigation.
Today Rob works in Global Business Development and on the side he is an author , a movie producer and an agriculture advocate. He has always played a role in leadership and business development and in 2014 was recognized as Canada's Agri-Marketer of the Year.
Rob has travelled much of the planet working with farmers and agri-business.
“The day was all about new ways to leverage technology to lift some of the poorest farmers on the planet to a new level of prosperity,”
