                              Heroes, Villains and their Motivations: Getting beyond “tell your story” 

        In this talk, Vance Crowe will discuss why some stories are more compelling than others,            articulating why it is so easy for consumers to believe that the critics of modern agriculture are        the heroes and the villains are the companies and individuals that have been successful.  Vance        will discuss how individuals can think about articulating their challenges being a successful            farmer in the modern age so that consumers can relate and cheer for you to succeed online, in          person and even in the grocery store.
