This is our second story in the series and its all about the very first project in dairy industry and we have never looked back.
Two months after starting out in business, I saw an advertisement in the Brisbane newspaper, The Courier Mail. It was for a Project Coordinator for a dairy industry project. It was a large feature ad for someone qualified and experienced in project management with experience in the agricultural sector. Self doubt crept in. I didn't think I'd get a look in as my experience was in large scale education not agricultural projects. I gave myself a talking to and decided to give it a go! I hoped being raised on a dairy farm and being involved in a family farming business might count for something.
