Path to Nuffield with Jodie Redcliffe and Maycon Santos

Communication is the Key to Funding Success, with Peter Ford and Georgie Aley

Right. It’s time to get funded... but how? In this episode we speak to Peter Ford and Georgie Aley – two experts who have the answers. They are both masters in the art of communicating with people who have the funds and are looking to invest. At its most exciting this comes in the form of a big captivating pitch that wins over a room of wealthy investors. But it can also take the form a simple one-on-one conversation, bringing a project to life step-by-step. They are important skills to learn for any change-maker dedicated to Feeding a Hungry Planet. ***** Find out more about the Youth Ag Summit at www.youthagsummit.com Follow us on social media: www.twitter.com/youthagsummit www.instagram.com/youthagsummit www.facebook.com/youthagsummit

Charting a Course for Lasting Change, with Alexander Soeriyadi and Aimee Snowden

You have identified a problem worth solving and can envisage a solution that will work. But even if the destination is clear, the way to get there is not. The development of any project will require change-makers to stay flexible while honing their ideas and finding willing customers. In this episode we hear from Alexander Soeriyadi and Aimee Snowden, two young agvocates bringing two very different projects to life. The Youth AgVocate Summit is a unique opportunity to connect and empower the next generation of agricultural change-makers. Every two years, we bring together 100 global young leaders aged 18 to 25, for networking, debates, skills training, and project development. The end goal? To equip young people to take concrete action on one of humanity’s most pressing problems: how to feed a hungry planet. ***** Find out more about the Youth Ag Summit at www.youthagsummit.com Follow us on social media: www.twitter.com/youthagsummit www.instagram.com/youthagsummit www.facebook.com...

The Evergrowing Awareness of Louise Fresco

In this episode we hear from Louise Fresco, Executive Board President of Wageningen University & Research and trailblazer for feeding a hungry planet.
