Eliz Greene

As a true believer in the celebrating excellence when you see it, I started the process to nominate Michele Payn-Knoper Mashable’s Twitter User of the Year. Please help make it possible for her to receive recognition for her outstanding leadership and unmatchable social media skills by voting for her .

She’s far to modest to toot her own horn in this fashion — which is just one of the reasons she deserves the honor.

Sure, she’s a great professional speaker – in fact she earned her Certified Speaking Professional Designation a few months ago. She is so much more!

Her devotion to her cause is imspirational. She tirelessly champions the agriculture community and empowers farmers to tell their own stories. Her orchestration of #Agchat and #foodchat Twitter-chats provides rich environments for the exchange of ideas and information. It is amazing to watch unfold.

The Ag community has put together an impressive Twitter campaign to get Michele this award.  I invite you to participate and learn what is possible through this medium.
