Day one of AgriPOWER VI session two was a crash course in how to get your message out and be heard. Dan Toland from Wilt PR and Callie Wells from Ohio Farm Bureau gave overviews of social and visual media while Melanie Wilt from Wilt PR and Joe Cornely from Ohio Farm Bureau presented on structuring the message and making it digestible for the masses. We all know that what we say is important, but how you say it may be even more so if you want to be heard. The group ended the day with a delicious meal and tour of Troutman Vineyards just minutes from Wooster.
