Amie Burke

Skills Manager AHDB

Amie works with the British agricultural and horticultural industry to identify and target gaps in skills, helping businesses develop a strategic approach to people management, leadership and personal development, providing training and digital resources.

Having worked in the agricultural sector for more than 10 years, Amie has focused on business improvement for farmers and also qualified as an ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, where she delivered a sustainability programme with large integrated businesses and smallholdings around the world.

In her spare time, Amie has an active role in AgRespect, an initiative that focuses on inclusivity and diversity in agriculture and horticulture. Not being from a farming background, as a female and a lesbian, Amie believes there should be no barriers to having a successful and prosperous career in an industry she actively promotes.
