ANYONE with a passion for the livestock and meat industries, or those with an interest in getting involved, have the chance to bolster their knowledge, boost skills and build new networks at the upcoming ICMJ Northern Conference.
Early-bird discounts close next week for the 2021 conference, which will be held in Rockhampton from April 7 to 10. The event will provide workers from all levels of the industry the chance to learn from and network with industry experts and agribusinesses professionals.
A highlight of the conference is the Beef Australia Careers Expo and Industry Exhibition on Thursday April 8, which uses a fun social setting to connect people of all skill levels and support them in taking the next step in their careers.
Aimee Bolton previously attended ICMJ events as a student, and having now graduated and employed full-time with Oakey Beef, she intends on continuing to come along to ICMJ events for the career development opportunities.
“You shouldn’t stop networking and developing professionally just because you’ve got a job – you’ve got to keep pushing to stay up-to-date with the latest in the industry,” she said.
“ICMJ events are also really fun, we’ve got lots of time in the schedule for networking over a few drinks and that’s important too, I can’t tell you how many times social connections made through ICMJ have come in handy in my career already.
“The sessions aren’t just valuable to those working in offices, it’s also workers on stations, those working on plant floors and everyone else whose combined efforts make the northern industry work,” she said.
“All those people need to be on the forefront of what’s coming in the sector because they are the leaders of the future and that’s what ICMJ is all about, to equip the people who will be taking us forward.”
