Tori talks for Farming Connect – September 2013
Climbing to the summit of Everest requires more than the technical skills and the appropriate equipment. There’s an attitude and a mindset that is also required. As part of Farming Connect’s ‘Women in Agriculture’ events programme I’ll be linking some of my first hand Everest experiences to critical topics such as health & safety and managing risk; the importance of accepting challenges, focusing on opportunities and the value of support networks. I spent the first 18 years of my life growing up and working on a mixed farm in Pembrokeshire and have witnessed the changes and challenges it has faced, including diversification.
I’ll be in four different locations across Wales on the following dates:
10 September – Waterloo Hotel, Betws-y-coed, LL24 OAR
11 September – Wynnstay Arms, Market Square, Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, SY10 0JL
17 September – Nantyffin Hotel, Llandissilio, Clynderwen, SA66 7SU
18 September – White House Country Inn, Sennybridge, LD3 8RP
Anyone wanting to attend one of the events, which all include supper, must book in advance.Email: Einir.firstname.lastname@example.org or call Einir on 01970 636297
