The Flaman Agriculture division meetings were highlighted by a presentation on “change” by Craig Reynolds, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club.

Both business and football have competitive environments were change is sometimes necessary. The image below features Flaman’s Saskatchewan agriculture team, with Craig standing just left of centre.
