Tickets are on sale for the NSW Government’s second annual Young Farmer Business Program (YFBP) Conference on 27 and 28 May, with an inspiring line up of speakers and a bigger trade exhibition in store, Member for Dubbo Electorate Dugald Saunders announced today.
Mr Saunders said the focus of the event in Dubbo was to expand the knowledge and skills of the State’s up-and-coming fishers and farmers through innovative ways of thinking.
“This year’s conference will welcome 350 like-minded delegates and equip them with valuable business, financial and planning skills to enhance their development and prospects in the agriculture sector,” Mr Saunders said.
“The conference will be followed by an evening of networking, with optional farm and business tours the day before on 27 May.
“If you’re a young farmer or fisher, then don’t miss out on this opportunity to network, learn and contribute to the agricultural sector and buy your ticket today.”
Mr Saunders said participants will hear from a line-up of expert speakers including: co-founder and former Farm Owners Academy CEO, Andrew Roberts; television broadcaster Edwina Bartholomew; and award-winning human futurist Chris Riddell.
“We’re thrilled to have this year’s guest speakers join us in Dubbo. Each will bring unique industry knowledge, share experiences and offer advice and key business insights into their professional success,” Mr Saunders said.
“We’ve also increased the number of trade exhibitors from the 2020 conference due to increased demand, creating an informative hub of trade displays for conference participants.”
