November CEO Round Up
Published 07 November 2022
I am sure you will have seen during the last week the announcement of funding from the Federal Government for Beef2024.
It was great for us to welcome Agriculture Minister Senator Murray Watt back to the CQLX complex at Gracemere for the occasion.
This investment by the Government recognises both the national and international importance of the triennial Beef Expo, but also the importance of the Beef community to both the social and economic life of Australia.
It is hard to believe I know; however, it is almost exactly 18 months until we open the gates on Beef2024.
Preparations are really starting to rev up, with several positions currently being advertised and some of our major tenders due to be released across the next few weeks.
If you think you may be interested in a position or tendering for work at Beef Australia, I encourage you to register for updates on our website if you have not already done so.
It is just one way of guaranteeing you hear of opportunities as they arise, as updates are sent to all who have registered as they are posted.
We have also opened expressions of interest for people who would like to be on our Stud Cattle Competition Committee.
This is the group that advises on all facets of our week-long stud cattle competition, and we would love to hear from people who would like to be involved. You can find further information under the ‘Compete’ tab on the website.
This week we also bid a temporary farewell to Emmagen Mula, our Marketing and Communications Manager, who is taking some time off to have her first child – we wish Emmagen and husband Daniel all the best for this exciting new chapter in their lives.
In the meantime, we are joined by Cassandra Kent, a very experienced marketing and comms professional, who will be handling this part of our business until Emmagen returns next year.
Welcome Cass and good luck Emmagen.
