You may recognize Delaney from her role as former host of the 46-year-old agribusiness show “Market to Market” or from her daily podcast she launched in 2017, Ag News Daily. In 2018 she launched Global Ag Network, a “herd” of agriculturally focused podcasts, which strive to provide entertaining, informative, and essential information to the agricultural industry.
In 2020, Delaney took on a new role as Chief Marketing Officer for an ag marketing company out of Des Moines, Iowa called Trader PhD offering commodity advisory services to farmers and ranchers all across the U.S.

She will also look at the world post Coronavirus Pandemic and discuss how the world will transition and evolve through emerging technologies, and how it could re-shape the future of agriculture.

ERA OF THE CONSUMER
Consumers used to rely on data and scientific evidence to make their buying decisions. Today, the trend is changing. As instant news and information continue to become the norm, how do we in agriculture change and adapt to meet those needs? We are in the midst of a pivotal moment for global agriculture with consumers tastes and preferences changing worldwide. From COVID-19, to African Swine Fever, Delaney exposes her audience to the realities of a transitioning global marketplace.
AMERICAN AGRICULTURE IN A GLOBAL WORLD
Travelling to 23 countries and 30 some states, Delaney studies agricultural systems on a large scale. U.S. agriculture plays such a vital role in so many countries that the importance sometimes gets lost to producers who are concerned about production on a smaller scale or local level. The purpose of this speech is to discuss several factors revolving around international agriculture such as: trade (TPP, TTIP, etc.), food accessibility, cultural differences, technology, and responses to the Coronavirus pandemic – and to highlight the connection between producers and the global world.
CAN AGRICULTURE LEARN FROM STARTUP CULTURE?
As a young entrepreneur, I have been faced with many challenges that I see farmers like my dad facing every day. Farms are similar to startups because they are a business and oftentimes producers forget that they are a business since farming is also a way of life for so many people. In this speech I go through five lessons learned from starting my own company and show the parallels between startups and successful farming.
