There has never been a more important time for agri-professionals to build and use better communication skills. It was a great start to 2018 to have another group of eight East Anglians to do just that. We gathered together for three intense days of tips, techniques and tasks – otherwise known as communication skills training.
To see the positive difference our communications training work makes is always a pleasure. In the first three months of this year we have been heartened – well delighted, actually – to see the participants of the latest our top-of-the-range training courses put their strengthened communication skills into practice.
Three days of non-stop communication skills training
A good chair makes a world of difference. By ‘chair’ we don’t mean the furniture you sit on. We mean the personality that is cleverly and concisely at the helm to steer proceedings. It was Susie Emmett’s pleasure to be invited to be chair again at the FARMA Conference 2016, the annual gathering of the […]
Sometimes an anniversary simply sneaks up on you. We were surprised and delighted when the congratulations came in from LinkedIn to Green Shoots for five successful years in business. Five years: time to reflect.
Time for a count up
A thousand days our office has been open: sounds and feels impressive. So we decided to count up some […]
One of the best things about being commissioned to make films is meeting great people with fascinating businesses in interesting places. We were delighted to hot foot it to the fields of a leading farming family in southern Germany for the height of their asparagus harvest. Yes, Green Shoots were asked to shoot green shoots!
Germans prefer their asparagus white. We […]
Film is fantastic for informing and inspiring – and certainly for entertaining. But without the right techniques all your creativity – and your viewer’s time – will be wasted.
This year we’re finding the Green Shoots Movie Making Masterclasses are a big hit. We love giving film making training and helping film makers not just to make […]
We are inviting UK farmers to take the time to add a little sparkle to the way you talk about farming. We are holding a 2 hour session at the Felix Cobbol Centre, Stanway Farm, in Otley, Suffolk on the 19th February 2015.
With backing from The Morley Agricultural Foundation (TMAF) and EDGE Apprenticeships, Farming is Magic is continuing […]
One of the quickest, most effective and memorable ways to inspire is through film. We can all have the technology at our fingertips: a phone to film on, a keyboard to edit with (if some nips and tucks and a music track enhance it) and finally a connection to the internet to share it with.
Got a presentation to give? Want your audience to be impressed? Wish to make best use of technology? The next media skills training course from Green Shoots ‘Presenting Powerfully’ will help you to achieve all that and more.
Whether Sharing ideas or research, or selling good or services, the competition for attention is fierce. Having clear […]
The list of reasons for farmers and others in agriculture to brush up their communication skills is a long one. I’m not the only one with a big list. Two great East Anglian farmers, Felix Cobbold and John Forrest, must have had long lists of what they thought farmers and scientists could be better at […]
