Well as the old adage goes “times flies when you are having fun”. It is hard to believe that it has already been over a month since I joined the amazing team here at Emerging ag inc.
My Emerging ag journey has been a constant learning experience on a multitude of levels. Working with a virtual team that is positioned around the globe is new for me, I am discovering a whole new side to the agriculture industry than I have previously been exposed to and at times I feel like I am learning a new language as I decode all of the acronyms that are used on a daily basis.
July was an incredible blending of old and new professional experiences as I began my Emerging ag career I also participated in the event coordination of some grassroots livestock events during the annual Westerner Days Exposition, blending the two very different aspects of the agriculture industry was a unique experience. One minute my focus was on sire and dam information of purebred cattle and the next minute I was reviewing an RSVP list that includes high level dignitaries from around the global. From Red Deer to Rome in the blink of an eye, how exciting!
I am truly enjoying being surrounded by such a supportive, passionate and driven group of people who are truly invested in making a positive difference around the world. I am excited to have the opportunity to meet the team members in person in the coming weeks as we congregate for our team meeting sessions being held here in Calgary.
Looking to the future I am excited to continue my journey of learning and I look forward to being able to contribute to the continued success of the Emerging ag upcoming events and projects.
