My Talk at Food On The Edge

Screen Shot 2018-02-07 at 11.05.55 AM

This past October, I was invited to speak at Food On The Edge in Galway, Ireland. Food On The Edge is a 2-day symposium bringing together people from different parts of the food industry to discuss stories, ideas, and the future of food. Some shared their innovations around food sustainability, others talked about mental health, and some challenged all of us with calls to action. It was such a fruitful experience for me not only being able to meet so many inspiring chefs, writers, and food producers, but being able to share my story and experience with them. Not to mention, the city of Galway was so remarkable-calming with its scenery (especially when accompanied by a cup of coffee), yet a city full of life and charm. The hospitality at every restaurant, pub, and cafe made me instantly feel like family. It was easily one of my favorite travel experiences of the year. But more on all things Ireland in another post…

For now, here is my talk sharing my food story (linked below). Thank you to everyone’s encouraging words when I was extremely nervous about public speaking! I hope you enjoy it and if you feel like someone else would find this beneficial, please share it!
