Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

BUR­NETT In­land Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tion is bring­ing its Women in Agri­cul­ture Day to Biggen­den.

To cel­e­brate the In­ter­na­tional Day of Ru­ral Women, BIEDO will host an­other of its sig­na­ture WAGs Day events in the North Bur­nett, at Biggen­den Memo­rial Hall on Oc­to­ber 15.

Ju­lia Telford from En­gage & Cre­ate Con­sult­ing was named as one of the 2018 Aus­tralian Fi­nan­cial Re­view 100 Women of In­flu­ence (Lo­cal and Re­gional).

Ms Telford is from Goondi­windi, where she es­tab­lished a con­sul­tancy busi­ness to help clients im­prove their busi­ness per­for­mance.

At the event she will give the re­gion’s fe­male farm­ers the tools to tackle tricky con­ver­sa­tions and pro­vide busi­ness knowl­edge.

Katie Zerner, a life coach, phys­io­ther­a­pist and owner of Cen­tral Bal­ance Mur­gon, will also be a speaker.

Ms Zerner has part­nered with RCS Aus­tralia to de­liver a ‘Vi­sion and Goals’ work­shop in Biggen­den.

Ms Zerner will ad­vise on how to com­mu­ni­cate a vi­sion to oth­ers.

BIEDO ac­knowl­edged the sup­port of the Bur­nett Catch­ment Care As­so­ci­a­tion in back­ing Ms Zerner.

Fi­nally, Monto’s Carly Baker-Burn­ham will lead a ses­sion ti­tled Holis­tic Prac­tice: Mind, Body & Busi­ness.

Mrs Baker-Burn­ham, is an or­ganic-beef pro­ducer at Bon­nie Doone with her hus­band Grant, and four chil­dren Lily, Ruby, Knox and Quade.

She has more than 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in busi­ness man­age­ment and agri­cul­ture.

Her phi­los­o­phy is and to tread gen­tly, work­ing with the rhythm of na­ture to en­sure re­gen­er­a­tion in our farm­ing and com­mu­nity sys­tems.

A deep in­ter­est in the hu­man form has led Mrs Baker-Burn­ham on a jour­ney of learn­ing and re­search­ing lead­er­ship, com­mu­nity and cre­ativ­ity.
