PDP Accelerate


A dynamic one-day event presented by the Professional Dairy Producers will give agriculture sector interns the tools they need to excel in today’s workforce. PDP Accelerate is set for July 24 in Madison, Wisconsin, with a full day of interactive programming to help attendees stand out from the crowd with the skills they need to shine in today’s agriculture careers.

Agricultural employers who incorporate PDP Accelerate into their summer internship program will not only enhance the intern experience and demonstrate their commitment to nurturing talent but also provide students with a renewed vigor during the final portion of the internship. PDP Accelerate is an opportunity to foster a culture of learning while aiding in training a pipeline of skilled professionals for the future of the agricultural sector.

“We’re thrilled to offer employers the chance to invest in their interns’ growth and development through PDP Accelerate,” said Amber Cafferty, marketing and development coordinator at PDP. “This event isn’t just about learning; it’s about empowering the next generation of agricultural leaders to excel in today’s rapidly evolving landscape.”

PDP Accelerate will be facilitated by Michael Hoffman, founder and owner of Igniting Performance Inc., a Dallas-based company that specializes in the skills of sales, customer loyalty and leadership. Hoffman will combine hands-on learning, peer networking and interactive skill practice to ensure interns build the skills they need to excel after college.

Interns will emerge from PDP Accelerate armed with the ability to initiate meaningful conversations, leverage technology effectively, exude confident body language, navigate diverse team dynamics, solicit and implement constructive feedback, and expand their professional networks — all essential attributes for success in the modern workforce.
