Agribuzz - hosted by King & Wood Mallesons

30 May 2024

King & Wood Mallesons is once again hosting Agribuzz to coincide with Vivid Sydney, providing an even more spectacular backdrop than usual.

Joining us from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, Heechung Sung will talk about how the race to zero is creating opportunities in the agriculture sector, her career journey and current role at the CEFC.

Agribuzz is a smart casual event providing professional networking and development opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere. It provides the opportunity for our members and friends to exchange business intelligence and ideas over drinks and canapés, enjoy a brief presentation, and mingle with their peers. 

Australian farming's global voice

31 May 2024

Su McCluskey is the first Special Representative for Australian Agriculture, appointed by government but with a farmer’s voice. Her role is to represent Australian agribusiness, to counter prescriptive approaches to agriculture that undermine a country’s sovereignty and right to farm in ways suitable to their own environment, biosecurity and economic considerations.

Su will share her observations on the expectations and perceptions around brand Australia, and the opportunities and headwinds she sees ahead for our agricultural exports.

NSW Chief Veterinary Officer, Jo Coombe, spoke to Farm Writers about how her team is protecting NSW against animal diseases and pests, and what may happen if we detected something like the highly contagious H5N1 avian influenza (bird flu).
