Arthur Rank Centre, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, CV8 2RX
7.00pm – 9.30pm
Organised by the Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society we are pleased to welcome Holly Beckett who will be speaking about mindfulness and how farmers can develop their ability to focus and manage their stress.
Holly Beckett is the fourth generation of a farming family in the West Midlands who farm 1200 acres of arable land alongside running a farm shop, restaurant, cookery school and conference facilities. in 2015 Holly undertook a Nuffield Farming Scholarship looking at practical applications that can be introduced for business growth through the development of people. She gained sponsorship in 2016 from The Frank Parkinson Agricultural Trust to pilot the introduction of mindfulness to agriculture. Through her study, Holly found this training had been heavily undertaken within the corporate industry, with results which improved productivity, reduced accident rates, better managed stress and enhanced overall well-being within employees. Focussed Farmers was launched in 2017 to measure the effects on farmers and ag-sector workers completing a programme of mindfulness and mental training, coupled with goal setting to develop their ability to focus, take charge of their state of mind and lead a happier and healthier life. The current study is providing some remarkable results.
