Michele Payn and I go back nearly 5 years, when I first met her in a hotel meeting room outside of Chicago for a speaker mastermind session. Immediately I loved her style, energy and passion for all things - especially for food.
No, it's not that Michele loves to eat as much as I do (few people do) it's that she is passionate about sharing the truth about food, and in helping people eat the right food.
Think about this: Everyone eats. Yet two-thirds of the U.S. population lives in cities, with many of these individuals never having visited a farm or ranch where their food is produced.
In this conversation, Michele shares some insights from her new book "Food Truths," why this matters to her, and how she balances life as a farmer, a mother, and a speaker who travels a ton!
Michele Payn personifies passion. Known as one of North America's leading experts in connecting farm and food, she serves as a resource for people around the plate. Michele encourages all of her clients and audiences to find people's hot buttons and speak their language - whether it's growing the conversation between farm gate and food plate, developing strategy, or building an advocacy plan. Widely known as a "change agent," Michele delivers training programs and motivational keynotes to empower organizations to build connected communities.
