ABOUT SPEAK UP! TRAINING
For people who work in agriculture, it’s sometimes hard to find the words when tough questions or inaccurate claims are raised. The Speak Up! workshop describes the average Canadian consumer, what they know about farming and how they think about food. It gives participants the ability to tell their stories in an easy-to-understand and compelling manner and explains how to have a positive, meaningful conversation about food and farming, providing pointers on handling difficult subjects. This is valuable for media interviews, farm tours, council meetings, service clubs, school groups and other situations where you are tasked with answering tough consumer questions about how food is produced.
