Talking to Politicians: How to Amplify Your Voice

by | Sep 11, 2023 | Seed Speaks

We often talk about what politicians can do for us, but how can we better communicate with them to make our views known? We’ll ask that question on Seed Speaks this week.

We’re excited to explore the intersection of politics and the seed industry, where your voice can truly make a difference. Our speakers, Canadian Conservative Member of Parliament James Bezan and Manitoba Progressive Conservative candidate Jeff Bereza, will be sharing their wealth of experience and insights on how you can effectively amplify your voice and advocate for the seed industry.

Join us as we uncover the strategies and tools needed to navigate the political landscape, influence policies, and shape the future of seeds. James Bezan, a seasoned MP, will provide valuable perspectives from the federal level, while Jeff Bereza, a political candidate running for office in the constituency of Portage la Prairie in the Manitoba provincial election, brings a fresh outlook from the provincial scene.

Both have been heavily involved in agriculture. Bezan has worked in the livestock sector and Bereza is no stranger to the seed industry, having served at Ceres Global Seeds as director of sales and marketing, successfully growing the business to become a leading independent soybean company across Western Canada.

In an era where policy decisions profoundly impact agriculture and seed production, understanding how to engage with politicians and policymakers is crucial. Discover the art of effective advocacy and learn how to communicate your concerns, ideas, and goals to create positive change in the seed industry.

This episode promises to be a dynamic conversation filled with practical advice, real-world examples, and the power of collective action. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain the knowledge and tools you need to make your voice heard in the world of seeds and politics. Tune in, be inspired, and be ready to make a difference!

Join us on Sept. 13 at 12 p.m. CDT on Seed World’s Facebook,YouTube and LinkedIn pages to watch the discussion.
