Tyson’s food technologists and chefs will then be sharing their knowledge in a workshop that afternoon to help student’s prepare for an Iron Chef competition the following morning. After the contest, the focus of the conference will turn towards becoming a professional where we will bring in Dale Carnegie training and concentrate on two main modules: handling mistakes and communicating to lead. This training will be sure to impress industry professionals and provide you with a competitive lead on internship and career opportunities!

Plan to join us Friday morning, March 13, for industry tours and all afternoon on Friday for the Tyson R & D workshop. Then on Saturday, March 14 for the Iron Chef brunch contest as well as Dale Carnegie Training. Tyson will also be providing a dinner at 6 p.m. on Saturday to those that want to stay Saturday night. The conference will be held in Springdale, Arkansas at the Tyson Discovery Center. Rooms are available at Aloft in Rogers, AR.
