2017 Symposium Keynote Address | AIChE
We are delighted to announce that Ravi Gukathasan, CEO, Digital Specialty Chemicals (DSC), will be delivering the keynote address at this year's symposium.


"The Evolution of a Vision - Delivering Engineered Chemistry and Transforming an Organization"

The journey of Digital Specialty Chemicals (DSC) will be presented as the company transformed from a 2-person laboratory to a world class multi-national company over the course of 30 years.  The presentation will highlight the origins of DSC as a small volume manufacturer with a great passion for chemistry to multidisciplinary excellence delivering metric ton quantities across North America, Europe and Asia.  The talk will focus on building a deliberately developmental learning organization to overcome barriers between chemistry and engineering in the scale up of highly reactive compounds.  This will include a discussion of placing safety at the heart of organizational change and designing a company for growth.
