Shark Tank Entrepreneur, T-PEE Founder to Speak at Warner University
Warner University invites you to campus on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. for the Water Conservation Symposium featuring Johnny Georges, the creator of the tree T-PEE® and known for his appearance pitching the product on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2013. “The meeting will be an opportunity for the central Florida agricultural community to come together to discuss challenges facing water use in agriculture and collaborate on solutions for the future. We are excited to host the community for this event,” stated Lauren Cline, director of agricultural development at Warner University.
Georges will be taking questions from the audience and will speak about water containment and conservation for the citrus and agriculture industry. An entrepreneur from Arcadia, Florida, Georges has spent his entire life around the citrus industry and is passionate to provide a water conservation solution to help growers. His invention, the tree T-PEE®, not only conserves water, but has been found through University of Florida research to also reduce fuel and fertilizer costs and promote strong root growth.
In 2013, Georges “got a deal” after pitching his product on ABC’s Shark Tank. Working with his partner, John Paul DeJoria, a philanthropist and environmentalist, Georges is working on taking the T-PEE® worldwide with the mission to save water and make a difference in the agricultural industry one tree at a time.
Warner University looks forward to seeing you at the symposium! Georges is an inspirational speaker who enjoys discussing protecting our land and water, and assisting farmers to save water, fuel, fertilizer, and herbicide. The event will start at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 in the Darby Lecture Hall. RSVPs are not required, but would be gratefully appreciated at firstname.lastname@example.org.
