Women in Agriculture


Cost: Free

Farming Connect's highly anticipated Women in Agriculture Forum has returned with a packed and varied programme designed to inspire, motivate and support you in your role as a woman working in agriculture.

19/09/2017, 10am - 4pm 
Portmeirion, Penrhyndeudraeth, LL48 6ER

21/09/2017, 10am - 4pm
Cardigan Castle, Cardigan, SA43 1JA

Keynote speaker:
Fflur Sheppard, Associate Director at Beattie Communications

Come and listen to Fflur Sheppard talk about influencing opinion and winning support at our Women in Agriculture events. Fflur works in the field of corporate communications and specialises in reputation management, a subject that is certainly relevant to us as an agricultural industry and our relationship with our consumer.

We will also run facilitated workshops on a range of topics including:

Are people your most valuable asset?

Formally reviewing and rewarding performance often isn’t high on the agenda within family farming businesses but are there advantages to doing more of this? Corinna Lloyd Jones, Menter a Busnes, asks the question: Are people your most valuable asset?

Growing a successful family business through growing people

Have you ever considered how mindfulness techniques could improve productivity, reduce accident rates, help you manage stress and enhance overall well-being within the agricultural industry? Come and listen to Holly Beckett, Focussed Farmers, to learn more about it.

Tackling Cybercrime

In a world where we have to increasingly rely on the internet to run our businesses, are you confident that your business is safe from cyber-attacks? Cybercrime teams from North Wales Police and Dyfed Powys Police will provide practical cyber security and fraud prevention and protection advice.
