Using the prize money from winning the Victorian Rural Ambassador, I attended the RAS of the Commonwealth Conference 2014 in Brisbane, with the RASV Team. This was invaluable to learn how shows around the world operate.
To help agricultural shows thrive in the 21st century, I wanted to share the worlds’ best practice with as many shows as possible.
Providing practical ideas and inspiration for show society members to access online is a cheap and scalable way for this information to reach more people who could benefit from it. This was where the Show Resources section of the website began.
I would love to develop this further by facilitating the sharing of information between shows across states.
