    Keynote OR Breakout | Educational | Motivational

    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.  

    Keynote OR Breakout | Educational | Entertainment

    The international markets continue to flutter with trade tensions and daily “breaking news.”  Through Delaney’s analysis of cultural, economic, and market influences, Delaney will walk through the current trade outlook and its impacts on the commodity markets. 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. 

    Keynote OR Breakout | Educational

    Agriculture policy and the political climate play a huge role in our everyday lives as agriculturalists. During this interactive presentation, Delaney takes audience members through the “ins and outs” of everything from the Farm Bill, to the current political climate and how those shaping our policy in Washington play an impact in our operations back home. 

    Keynote OR Breakout

    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. 

    Keynote OR Breakout

    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.
