Lyndsey Smith on communicating and teamwork

In honour of International Women’s Day, we decided at RealAgriculture that we’d highlight some of the fantastic women across this industry and spread a little joy in these tough times.

There are so many brilliant women out there that we could spend the rest of the year talking about it. In the process of lining up interviews, I sat down and thought about who inspires me to be better in my career every day.

One of the strangest parts of being a journalist is being surrounded closely by bright and shining people, but never really getting the chance to interview them, even if they may be the people we talk to regularly.

I think we as people often forget about the ones blazing trails in our own backyards; so without further ado, today’s focus: Lyndsey Smith.

Smith — a voice and face you see regularly across our site — has been a communicator since very early in her career. I’ve had the opportunity throughout the years to catch up with members of her family, and as I’m sure many of you can imagine — she’s been asking questions and talking since, well, she could talk.

From thriving at public speaking and writing in high school, to being a University of Manitoba Aggie, to determining what her own leadership style is, Smith has lived across the Prairies, and currently resides with her partner Chris, three kids, and of course — too many sheep — at Kinburn, Ont.

I could go on about her experiences, but this one I think just has to be listened to. Find the full conversation below, or download to listen later, wherever you get your podcasts.
