Young Professionals in Agriculture Forum


19 October 2012

The modern face of agriculture will confront many challenges over the coming years. With fewer resources, our young agri-professionals will be faced with the task of leading this sector through a tough period of global food insecurity. In order to reduce the threat of the world slipping into an unprecedented global food crisis, today's young agri-professionals will need to utilise their skills in an exceptional manner.

Join other young professionals in agriculture, including recent graduates, at a one-day forum to connect the dots on issues of our time, including:
- effectively communicating the science of agriculture
- the role of social media in agriculture
- promoting agriculture as a career path
- networking to influence national agendas

A much more efficient and productive group of young agri-professionals requires; coordination, dedication and education. The upcoming "Young Professionals in Agriculture Forum" aims to offer recent agricultural graduates the opportunity to further their professional development through a range of interactive educational workshops. Targeting the areas of communication, education and coordination, it is hoped that this one day conference will leave young graduates feeling invigorated about the challenges that lie ahead and eager to "keep the conversation going".

Key speakers include:

  • Costa Georgiadis from ABC's Gardening Australia
  • Tony Peacock - Eureka Prizewinner
  • Brendan Fox from Farm Plus
  • Bruce Howie from C-Qual Agritelligence

The forum will be followed by a networking private cocktail reception at Taste.
