Connecting the dots of science, people and money with Kate Burke
Show Notes

Every day, we make hundreds of decisions. These decisions affect you, your business and those around you. This week we have Kate Burke on the podcast talking about how to make the right decisions.

With 26 years of experience behind her, Kate has a huge range of expertise in the Agriculture industry. Kates principles come from her experience in the industry as an agronomist, an educator, researcher, writer and also growing up as part of a multigenerational farming business.

"My mantra at Think Agri is about good, sophisticated thinking in agriculture and bringing together the best of both worlds; that intuitive multigenerational farm thinking and some of the discipline that comes out of corporate agriculture."

"My philosophy is about joining the dots and connecting the people, the technical and the business all together."

Today Kate walks us through eight points of 'wethering the storm', something we need to constantly keep in mind in such a changeable industry as agriculture.

1. Managing thought.
The simple concept of drafting your thoughts like sheep through the race.

2. Be aware of self and others
Self awareness is about being in tune where you are at, and reading the play around you.

3. Maintain resilience
This is resilience in terms of staying productive and staying well- something we've done poorly as a farming industry.
