Plan, Practice and Prepare

After harvest season inevitably comes “meeting season.” These winter months are filled with farm shows, outlook meetings and agriculture conferences. Although the events are full of interesting sessions and great speakers, the most value we receive out of them is interacting with other attendees. During these informal conversations, we learn the most. But to get the most out of these conversations, and in order to build your network, you have to plan, practice and prepare.
