“The Syngenta Business Institute is arguably the best continuing education program I have attended. It was a learning experience that will allow me to grow as a leader for my maintenance team and club. The educators and hosts were first-class and the opportunity to network with fellow superintendents is always an added bonus. Thank you again to the entire Wake Forest and Syngenta team for this opportunity.”
