Topic: "The Future of Livestock Marketing"

A Senior business leader with a strong, broad and practical understanding of the global Agribusiness Industry, Anna has a verifiable track record revitalising under performing operations, opening new markets, and building market credibility through innovative products that ensure competitiveness in tough markets.

As the CEO of AuctionsPlus, an online saleyard, Anna has spent the past two years disrupting traditional markets and turning AuctionsPlus into the largest saleyard in Australia. Also known as eBay for cows and sheep, the business facilitates the exchange of livestock utilising simple technology allowing Australia to be the catchment pool.

After completing a Bachelor of Science, Anna spent 5 years working for Consolidated Pastoral Company in the stockcamps whilst completing a Bachelor of Primary and Secondary Education and teaching part-time in remote Indigenous communities. This was the start of her involvement in livestock marketing and technology which lead her to become General Manager of Livestock Exchange, an innovative software solutions provider focused on value adding in the red meat supply chain. This role saw her running projects such as reopening the Live Export trade between Australia and Egypt using traceability and education and implementing a herd performance management system to Australian Agricultural Company.

Director of the Future Farmers Network, an Australian Rural Leadership Foundation Graduate, mentor for the Graeme Acton Beef Connections Mentor Program, Anna has completed the Australian Company Directors Course and is currently completing the University of Sydney’s Global Executive MBA Program and is passionate about improving the Australian Livestock Supply Chain.
