For this event I had about 300 farmers in the room — and truth be told, I love working with these folks. Farmers are some of the most innovative people I know — they are open to new ideas, the exploration of new technologies; they are constantly in search of new methodologies and so much more. It’s a theme I capture in the agriculture section of my Web site; in particular, read the post Two Types of Farmers. I’ve got a separate keynote description for my agricultural talks : Big Trends in Agriculture: What Will the World’s Oldest Profession Look Like in 2025?
“Inspire yourself by learning from farmers – they take risks based on imperfect future information, regularly face unpredictable scenarios, and find themselves at the mercy of unforeseen forecasts. Yet through it all, they stay relentlessly focused on the opportunities that exist for growth!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
