Next Gen

Next Gen Welcome Function

Kicking off the Next Gen Program on Wednesday the 8th May is an evening meet and greet with likeminded peers and renowned rural journalist, Pip Courtney.

Drawing from her own personal experiences, Pip will share her story on how she overcame a fear of public speaking and networking and give you some pointers on how to best maximise your outcomes for the week.  

About Pip Courtney

Pip became the host of Landline in 2012 after joining the program in 1993.   

Pip joined the ABC as a cadet in Hobart in 1986.  After beginning her career in news, she combined her love of journalism and agriculture when she joined Landline, moving to Brisbane in 2003. 

Pip has won numerous awards for her agricultural journalism including a Queensland Media Award for Excellence in Rural Journalism, the Rabobank Star prize for rural broadcasting (Qld), the National Rabobank Star prize and the International Star Prize for Rural Broadcasting for her 2011 two-part feature on the coal seam gas industry in Queensland.  

In 2018 Pip was inducted in the Queensland Press Club’s Rural Journalism Hall of Fame.
