Elisha Parker named 2020 Rising Champion
Queensland's Elisha Parker has been named the 2020 NAB Agribusiness Rising Champion at a Cattle Council gala dinner in Canberra tonight.
From Clermont, Elisha (pictured above with Paul Barnes from NAB Agribusiness and Cattle Council president Tony Hegarty) co-founded a national online cattle sales platform that provides marketing tools and technology to livestock agents, and has a keen interest in the role that young industry members will play in shaping the future of the beef sector.
NAB Agribusiness Rising Champions Initiative
Cattle Council aims to inspire, empower and support young people, who are passionate about the Australian beef industry and to provide them with an opportunity to be directly involved. It is vital that the cattle producers and stakeholders of tomorrow are involved in the planning that occurs today. That’s why Cattle Council is offering young people passionate about the Australian beef industry the opportunity to have a say and be heard by the decision makers.
The NAB Agribusiness Rising Champion Initiative provides participants with the opportunity to network with some of Australia’s key beef industry leaders and provide contacts that will contribute to participant's career progression within the beef industry.
Through the professional development workshop and attendance at the National Gala Dinner participant's are given an insight into the Australian beef industry, Cattle Council of Australia operations, the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) operations and network with industry representatives, sponsors, state farming organisations and parliamentary figures. The opportunity to broaden their interpersonal skills throughout the workshop allows participants to market themselves and learn how to represent themselves in a professional and clear manner.
Cattle Council would like to thank the following for their support in the NAB Agribusiness Rising Champions Initiative:
- Gold Sponsor: NAB Agribusiness;
- Silver Sponsor: McDonalds Australia;
- Media Sponsor: Australian Community Media; and
- State Farming Organisation members of Cattle Council (AgForce Queensland, NSW Farmers' Association, Tasmanian Farmers' and Graziers Association, WA Farmers, Pastoralists and Graziers Association of WA, Northern Territory Cattlemen's Association, Victorian Farmers' Federation, Livestock SA).
