Agribuzz hosted by NAB Regional and Agri Banking

Thursday 13 February 2020

Always a hugely popular event, our first Agribuzz for 2020 is generously sponsored by NAB Regional and Agri Banking.  Places will be in high demand again this year and you must book to attend so click here now.

Over drinks and canapés, our members and friends exchange business intelligence and views, enjoy a brief presentation from a leader in their field, and mingle with their peers. Those establishing their careers take the rare opportunity of talking to agribusiness leaders over a drink while those on the look-out for talent meet aspiring leaders-in-the-making. 

Our guest speaker at February’s Agribuzz is Rebecca Willson, Managing Director for Proterra Investment Partners, responsible for directing their agriculture investments in Australia.

Agribuzz attracts people from diverse areas of agribusiness including banks, representative organisations, agribusiness service companies, consultants, government and the media. Please pass this invitation on to friends or colleagues, particularly the younger members of your staff. Agribuzz welcomes professionals working in, or with an interest in, the agribusiness sector.

Welcome to Farm Writers

The Farm Writers' Association of NSW was established in 1966 as the Farm Writers' and Broadcasters' Society of NSW.

Its aim is to foster communication about and promote the interests of rural Australia in general and the NSW farm sector in particular.

Farm Writers plays an important role in helping to strengthen links and understanding between the rural sector and the wider Australian community.

Regular forums held in Sydney provide a unique and respected platform for industry leaders, expert commentators, entrepreneurs and activists to communicate with a wide range of audiences and influencers.

The Association also provides a forum for rural journalists and other agri-communicators to discuss rural industry developments and issues in a networking environment with people involved in farming, food and fibre processing, marketing, regulation, and rural politics.

Farm Writers invites you to join us at our monthly lunch seminars and at Agribuzz, our quarterly evening networking functions.

Speaker presentations 

Wednesday 11 December 2019: Farm Writers Christmas Lunch, hosted by our Patron, the Hon. Adam Marshall MP - NSW Minister for Agriculture and Western NSW and featuring the 2019 NSW Farmer & Young Farmer of the Year Awards at NSW Parliament House.
Prior speakers can be accessed via the Speakers Archives link and are on our YouTube channel.
