This is the latest in the series of Agri-Turf Talks panel discussions first launched in 2020 which has previously featured topics such as The Future of the Dealership, Agricultural Engineering and the Environment, Challenges of Recruitment and Combatting Supply Issues
This episode features an all-women panel discussing career opportunities in an industry often described as being full of 'middle class, middle aged men'.
Chris Biddle hosts the panel comprising Poppy Burrough, Sales Support Specialist JCB Agricultural Sales and Marketing, Hannah Robinson, Operations and Marketing Manager Brian Robinson Machinery, Lauren Savage, Technical Trainer AP Air Europe and Jackie Evans, Head of Grounds, Wellington College.
In a refreshingly open discussion, the panel talks about sexism, women's thought processes v men, lack of industry focus on opportunities for women, and their personal role models.
