Wheatbelt Natural Resource Management Inc is an independent community-based organisation leading natural resource management (NRM), endeavours within the Avon River Basin in WA. Over the past six months we have been helping them to organise the Talkin’ Soil Health Conference to highlight innovations in soil management in the Wheatbelt. The conference held over two days (26 and 27 March) in York was a huge success with over 200 participants from around the region, neighbouring regions and interstate.
As part of the event management we ensured that the right speakers were engaged, the marketing was in the right place at the right time with the right message, the intricate bits and pieces were taken care of and that all tasks were organised. Wheatbelt NRM were stoked with the outcome and the feedback was fantastic.
We can’t take all the credit of course, Wheatbelt NRM were celebrating some fabulous programs that have engaged landholders in innovative soil management practices and having these landholders featured at the conference amongst key leading scientists built strong links between research and practice.
Our flare for keeping things as practical and hands-on as possible was reflected in the second day of workshops and with Melanie at the helm the two days ran very smoothly. Contact us if you would like to talk about how you can make your next conference a huge success.
