My Experience with Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything”

Last week while attending the North Carolina Agriculture and Biotechnology Summit I tried something for the first time…I participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit. Let me tell you, it was nearly addictive. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated all of the thoughtful questions that the Reddit audience submitted. And the more questions that came in, the more motivated I was to provide thoughtful and meaningful responses. You can see the entire exchange on Reddit here.
I think this is a great way to engage in relevant dialogue with those that want to know more about our industry and what we at Bayer CropScience do to add value to it. I look forward to seeing more dialogue like this take place and I can’t wait to get the chance to do this again!
