Outdoor adventure star, leadership adviser to keynote at ONE19

This year’s lineup at Alltech’s 35th annual conference includes Bear Grylls and Chris Zook.

Global animal health company Alltech has unveiled the keynote speakers for ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference. A unique global conference that presents innovation-driven solutions for overcoming challenges in agriculture, business, health and wellness, brewing and distilling and everyday life, ONE19 will be held May 19-21 in Lexington, Ky.

This year’s lineup at Alltech’s 35th annual conference includes Bear Grylls and Chris Zook.

Grylls, one of the most recognized faces of survival and outdoor adventure, will take the ONE19 mainstage. Grylls starred in seven seasons of the Discovery Channel’s Emmy Award-nominated “Man vs. Wild” television series, which became one of the most-watched shows on the planet. The BAFTA award-winning host trained in martial arts from a young age, and his survival skills were later perfected during his service in the 21 Special Air Service Regiment. When a free-fall parachuting accident left him with a broken back, Grylls’ grit and determination guided his long recovery. He went on to become one of the youngest people to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

Grylls is a No. 1 best-selling author, an honorary colonel to the Royal Marine Commandos, the youngest ever U.K. Chief Scout and the first Chief Ambassador to the World Scout Movement, representing a global family of 50 million scouts.

Joining the lineup is Chris Zook, best-selling author of books on leadership and business strategy and an advisory partner at the renowned consulting firm Bain & Co. Zook specializes in guiding companies to find new sources of profitable growth and renew themselves internally to become more adaptive and entrepreneurial. He was included by the Times of London in its biannual list of the “50 Most Influential Global Business Thinkers.” He was also named “one of the most interesting strategic thinkers working today” by “The Financial Times Guide to Strategy.”

Alltech’s flagship conference is attended annually by nearly 4,000 people from over 70 countries who gather to explore solutions to improve their businesses and the world around them. In addition to the general session, subject- and species-specific breakout sessions with industry experts give attendees an opportunity to explore their particular fields, including aquaculture, beef, crop science, dairy, pig, poultry, equine, health and wellness, business, and brewing and distilling. Additional ONE19 speakers and session topics will be announced shortly.
