(St. Louis) -- The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is pleased to welcome Consuelo Madere,  Vice President of the Global Vegetable and Asia Commercial at Monsanto, as the keynote speaker at the Hispanic Speakers Series on August 10. The Hispanic Speakers Series is designed to highlight men and women of Hispanic descent who  are making significant contributions to the St. Louis community and/or the country. At this event, Madere will address “Leadership: What it is and why it matters.” The proceeds from this event will benefit the Hispanic Chamber’s Capital Campaign.


Madere will discuss the importance of leadership at all levels – from the St. Louis region’s efforts to stand out in biotechnology innovation, to American farmers’ role as the most productive in the world. In between are opportunities for local businesses, increased science and technology education and leaders who want to give back to their communities.


“We are so pleased to have Consuelo Madere as our keynote speaker at this event,” said Karlos Ramirez, Executive Director of the Hispanic Chamber. “As the highest ranking Latina at Monsanto Company, a global agribusiness with more than 20,000 employees and more than $11 billion in annual sales, Madere can attest to the importance of leadership. This event will be a great benefit to everyone in the St. Louis business community.”
