Beanstalk Global Launch Broadcast With Women In Food And Farming.

‘Women in Food and Farming’ is a group of professional women in food, agriculture and the land-based industries at all stages of their careers, who get together to discuss business issues, support each other via mentorship and advice, and help generate networks of contacts that might be useful to themselves and their businesses.

Founded by the Groceries Code Adjudicator, Christine Tacon – CBE, the group started back in 2011 with just five women and has now grown to over 400 members.

The group tends to meet three times a year, normally in London, with two informal networking events with interactive presentations on relevant topics, followed by a light buffet and lots of networking. They also hold a sit-down dinner in the summer, with themed conversations running throughout. As the group expands, they will continue to adapt these events according to the feedback of members. The group is open to anyone who feels the network would be of benefit to them – to meet, network, offer moral support, seek out mentors, ask questions and share experiences. A key aim is to promote the sectors they represent and actively encourage others into the industry, be it those of the younger generation or those changing their career path.

In our current strange times, Beanstalk is very proud to offer our extensive platforms to allow Women in Food and Farming to continue their conversation and debate and to encourage new members ongoing to join them, be that on a virtual Broadcast basis.

On our first Broadcast, Christine give a background to the Group before Max MacGillivray – Editor in Chief of Beanstalk had a very engaging conversation with the hugely impressive Anna Harris. She is Director of Strategy for Stein IAS who are a multi award-winning global marketing agency. Her recent MBA dissertation majored on the findings on motherhood and ambition in the UK Grocery industry. With a background of working at a senior level with the likes of ASDA/Walmart and Robert Bakery, she knows a thing or two about progressing a challenging career, juggling not only ambition but an ever-growing family as well! It will be fascinating to hear and learn from her.

Post that “chat” we saw a short video of some of the key Group Members discussing their view on the subject of “Ambition”.

Afterwards, everyone went out into virtual “Breakout” rooms to continue the conversation and reacquaint themselves with everyone else!

We are hoping to go again for early December for the next Women in Food and Farming Broadcast. Watch this space!
