NEW RELEASE:
Christine’s Book

Food and agriculture used to be about old farmers, big corporations, and dismal opportunities. But now, interest and investments in “agrifoodtech” have reached record levels. A tidal wave of game-changing innovation is taking over the world.

For ten years, Christine has worked with tens of thousands of Millennial and GenZ innovators in every part of the world. She has come to understand the unique attitudes and approaches that define today’s young people – and how they represent an enormous opportunity to transform our food systems.

Learn the powerful formula she has discovered to unlock breakthrough innovation by tapping into six key “next-gen” attitudes – openness, collaboration, beginner’s mindset, entrepreneurial methods, purpose, and community-focus. Understand an overarching mindset called “multispectral thinking” that will unveil hidden insights and more holistic ways to solve big problems.

This book is written to inspire and motivate you to be part of creating and leading the change we need, right now. It provides action-focused advice and guidance that will put you on the path towards becoming a catalyst and change-maker – regardless of your age, location, or position in life.
