ACTIVITIES AT FARM WORLDTelstra Women in Ag LunchCome along and be inspired!The Telstra Women in Ag Luncheon, now a signature event on the Farm World calendar, provides the perfect platform to not only hear from some inspirational speakers, but also to network and liaise with a room full of energetic, talented women. Patron of the Telstra Women in Ag event, Angela Betheras, winner of the 2011 Victorian Agri-futures Rural Woman of the Year award, initiated this event in 2012 as a way of celebrating the significant contribution that women make in rural and regional Australia, many of whom she met through her award travels. So many fabulous women making huge impacts in their businesses and communities, and through the Telstra Women in Ag lunch, we wish to celebrate them.This year’s luncheon will feature speakers who will engage, inspire and motivate you with their personal and professional journeys. Their stories are from the heart and will challenge you to think outside the box, believe in your abilities and provide some real life, day to day experiences – both the trials and celebrations. It’s an afternoon for fabulous networking in a casual and charismatic environment over a delicious lunch and a glass of wine. So, grab your friends, round up your colleagues and book your tickets online now.Come and see Farmer Darryl at Farm World!Come and meet Farmer Darryl and all his gorgeous animalsFor many, one of the highlights at Farm World, Lardner Park is getting to see all the gorgeous animals, both large and small.
