The Women in Agribusiness Summit is one of the leading events in the agriculture industry, bringing together women worldwide to network, share ideas, and learn from industry leaders. This year’s event promises to be even more exciting with the inclusion of Meggie Palmer as the keynote speaker. Her wealth of experience as a confidence creator will undoubtedly resonate with the attendees looking to bridge the confidence gap and elevate their careers.
Palmer’s talk, “Write Your Success Story,” will provide practical insights into crafting a compelling narrative that aligns with one’s goals and aspirations. She will explore the relationship between personal stories and confidence, identifying limiting beliefs and reframing one’s mindset to cultivate a more confident and empowered version of oneself. Attendees can expect to leave the summit with actionable strategies that they can implement in their own lives.
In addition to her keynote speech, Palmer will lead a pre-opening event workshop titled “Negotiate Like a Pro.” In this session, she will share valuable tips and techniques on how to level up in one’s career, with the mission to close the gaps that limit professional growth, such as gender pay. This workshop will be an excellent opportunity for attendees to gain practical skills they can apply immediately in their work environment.
