A Note from our CEO ( Interim ) - Dr Nicola Watts

   Thursday 16th May, 2019

Since our amalgamation in March and subsequent official launch at Farm World in April, it has been all systems go at Food & Fibre Gippsland, and it’s all about change!

So let me take this opportunity to talk a bit about change.

We facilitate a lot of change at many levels, and they are all happening simultaneously!.

Some of this change is ‘transactional’ and a good example of this is where we have run workshops to help industry facilitate process improvements to support improved productivity outcomes.

We are also in the midst of ‘transitional’ change as we manage the amalgamation, align lots of activity and explore new ways of organising and working.

But in principle Food & Fibre Gippsland is about the facilitation of ‘transformational’ change which acknowledges the complexity in which we work, as we seek to unleash new levels of collaboration, innovation and engagement to support sustainable outcomes for our sector and our region.

In amongst all of this change, our members, stakeholders and industry partners remain the core of everything we do, with their success and prosperity being what drives us every day.

We look forward to being part of the change you want to see!

Dr. Nicola Watts
