Mintec invites you to their event

Building resilience in agriculture

About this event

With agriculture on the cusp of huge change amid a shifting regulatory landscape, as well as coping with external influences such as climate change, coronavirus and Brexit, tomorrow's farmers will need radically different skills and mindsets in order to thrive.

To support agriculture's next generation, Farmers Guardian has joined forces with The Louise Hartley Memorial Fund to bring you a virtual event on February 17th at 7.30pm - building resilience in agriculture.

Many of you will be familiar with the foundation which was set up by the family of Louise Hartley, a former FG livestock reporter who died aged just 24 in 2016 from a rare form of ovarian cancer. A hugely popular member of the farming community, the Hartley family has raised thousands of pounds in her memory and uses it to aid the development of young people in agriculture, including scholarships and a study tour to New Zealand in 2019. This unwavering dedication for the next generation continues in 2021, with this free virtual event which will allow as many young farmers to benefit and take part as possible.

We’re inviting you to join us from home to take part in discussion and debate, live chat, ask questions and tell us about your experience. We’re asking:

  • How can you develop your own career and leadership skills?
  • How can you practically develop your skills with training, mentoring and networking?
  • How can you build and enhance the commercial resilience of your business?
  • How can you improve your own personal resilience, physical and mental wellbeing?
  • How can the farming industry become more agile and prepared for the changes 2021 will bring?

Farmers Guardian editor Ben Briggs is joined on this webinar by guests to share their unique insight, learnings and perspective:

  • Claire Eastham, 2020 British Farming Awards winner - New Entrant: Against the Odds
  • Phil Halhead, Norbreck Genetics
  • Tom Pemberton, YouTube influencer
  • Stella Owen, NFU Cymru and She Who Dares Farms

Support for this webinar is also being provided by Lancaster and Morecambe Agricultural and Horticultural Society. Keen to support young people in agriculture, it has thrown its weight behind the webinar in lieu of its normal activities which have been cancelled due to Covid-19 and the pandemic.
