Women in Agribusiness announces keynote speaker

Meggie Palmer will draw upon her experience as a confidence creator through her work with Fortune 100 companies on diversification efforts.

Meggie Palmer, speaker, facilitator and executive coach, will be the keynote speaker at the 2023 Women in Agribusiness Summit, which will take place in Nashville, September 26-28.

In her address titled “Write Your Success Story,” Palmer will draw upon her experience as a confidence creator through her work with Fortune 100 companies on diversification efforts, and her founding of the PepTalkHer App, which helps close the gender gap by providing professional track sessions and navigation pathways to promotions and business success. Palmer’s community of professional women is now 60,000 strong, working together to elevate performance and supercharge their career achievements.

“It seemed fitting to announce this powerhouse keynote speaker on International Women’s Day, a time when we reflect on the progress made in women’s rights movements, such as gender parity,” said Carrie Vita, WIA event director with parent company, HighQuest Partners. “Palmer is a dynamic speaker and seasoned professional who will kick off our 12th annual conference with inspiration and motivation, helping women shape their personal stories to bridge the confidence gap. Attendees will walk away with actionable insights.”

Palmer will focus on:

  • Exploring the relationship between personal stories and confidence and learning practical strategies for crafting a compelling narrative that aligns with one’s goals and aspirations.
  • Delving into the art of self-reflection, identifying limiting beliefs, and reframing one’s mindset to cultivate a more confident and empowered version of oneself.
  • Additionally, through her pre-opening event workshop “Negotiate Like a Pro,” Palmer will help individuals level up in their careers, with the mission to close the gaps – like gender pay – that limit this. She will share tactics for recording wins, approaching negotiations with confidence, stating your ask, and arriving at an outcome that is beneficial to all parties. Told through real-life examples, the workshop will help identify opportunities where negotiation can be used to advance career outcomes.
