Australia is a large country and invariably some people who may like to attend IG are prohibited from doing so by the tyranny of distance as well as the costs associated travelling this distance. To extend the reach of IG – the concept of bringing an abridged version of the conference to the regions, a new, across-commodity, across-industry initiative –was considered and culminated in IG Local.
IG Local is an initiative to bring the best of IG to your local community. The event will bring inspirational speakers to take part in an afternoon and evening of capacity building and networking amongst tomorrow’s up and coming Agricultural leaders. Topics and speakers include:
Where is the value in technology – John Alexander
John will question the value point or return on investment for technology – both Internet related and agronomic management.
Communication within and about our industry – Kathleen Allan
Kathleen will speak about the role we have within promoting the agricultural industry and how we can close the disconnect between customers and producers.
The importance of mental health – Fiona Livingstone
Fiona is passionate about the health and wellbeing of rural communities and will speak about the Farm-Link project, a suicide prevention program.
Farm management – Finding solutions – Andrew Earle
Andrew will speak about his role within the industry and encourage you to think outside the box to solve a problem.
This panel will discuss local issues and find a unified way to solve them. John Alexander, Andrew Earle, Zara Lowein, Megan Davies and Susan McDonnell will sit on the panel.
