Event Details

Please join us for a smart casual networking event for young people working in and associated with agribusiness. Over drinks and light finger food enjoy a brief presentation from a keynote speaker and network with other industry professionals.

Why:  While each of the YARN events to date have been a huge success Clayton Utz are really lifting the bar. The YARN has secured another high-quality speaker you would be out of pocket to hear from anywhere else. The catering will be sourced from the finest local suppliers and the views will make you reconsider your Valentine’s Day plans.      

Who: The YARN has been set up to provide quarterly networking events to give young people in agribusiness the opportunity to network with other industry professionals they might otherwise not get to meet.  

Speaker: Anna Speer was appointed Chief Operating Officer of AACo in August 2018. Prior to joining AACo, Anna was CEO of AuctionsPlus, where she was responsible for growing the business into Australia’s largest marketplace for livestock, facilitating the exchange of over $830 million in livestock each year. Anna was previously General Manager of agricultural technology firm, Livestock Exchange. She has deep experience in the pastoral industry, including as Stud Registrar of Consolidated Pastoral Company’s Newcastle Waters station. She holds a Bachelor of Science, as well as a Bachelor of Primary and Secondary Education, as well as being a graduate of the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation, the Australian Institute of Company Directors and the University of Sydney’s Global Executive MBA program. Anna was also received the 2018 Rabobank Emerging Leader Award.


Refreshments: Light refreshments will be provided with a Queensland provenience story. Any dietary requirements via a comment when registering and we will do our best to accommodate.

Admission: FREE

Lucky Door Prize: T.B.A
