The Speak Up team concept was developed more than 15 years ago and has now expanded across the country with courses provided to farmers and others working in the agriculture industry in every province. The training gives participants the ability to tell their stories, in an easy-to-understand and compelling manner.
The skills and training learned during this session can be helpful when conducting media interviews, farm tours, attending council meetings, speeches to service club members, school groups and more. In this workshop, you’ll learn who your average Canadian is, how much they know or don’t know about farming and food in Canada and how to tell your farm story to a non-farming audience.
