Women in Ag Conference coming to MT

Mark your calendar and join us for inspiration, knowledge and networking on Saturday, March 19, 2016 for the 5th Annual Women in Agriculture Conference.

“Power Up Your Farm” is the theme for the fifth annual Women in Agriculture Conference and will be an engaging, interactive day full of inspiration, learning and networking with other women farmers. This conference is a one-day event held simultaneously in 31 locations throughout Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana and Oregon.

Power Up Your Communications

Communication is the most powerful tool for building business and personal relationships. Our ability to influence people is directly related to how we communicate. This conference will help you discover your communication style and how to use it to manage, motivate and influence people. You will learn to “pull out” your personality traits to change as the situation changes. Confidence in your ability to be a successful farmer will strengthen your farming operation.

*Wendy Knopp and Michael Stolp with Northwest Farm Credit Services will facilitate this session.

Power up Your Farm

Different personality styles impact the way we interact with customers, family, business contacts and employees. Women farmers know how to produce their product. Sometimes, however, our communication style makes it difficult to sell that product, motivate an employee, convince a lender or landlord or get along with family members or a business partner. Your new skills will help you build better teams, improve decision making and connect marketing to what motivates prospects and customers.

*Oregon farmer, Shelly Boshart Davis will explain how she improved her communications approach with people and how it improved her business strategies.
