Put on specifically for 18 to 40-year-olds working in the agriculture industry, Innovation Generation is now in its 13th year and has been hosted in six states and territories.
The event brings together award-winning speakers, innovators and industry professionals from across the farming sector.

There is a comprehensive line up of speakers including guests from a variety of agricultural, horticultural, business and sporting pursuits.

The speakers include Julia Hausler, a mixed farm grower in the Wimmera region of Victoria. She has more than 20 years' experience in agriculture including expertise in marketing, accumulation, education, agribusiness finance and rural policy.

Hausler is chair of Rural NorthWest Health Board, Group Treasurer for Central Wimmera CWA and a member of the Birchip Cropping Group (BCG) Research Committee. She has been a GrainGrowers member since 2004.

Hausler completed the Australian Rural Leadership Program in 2013 and was named as a finalist in Fairfax Media's Inaugural 100 Women in Australian Agribusiness Awards.

Speed skater Steven Bradbury will also speak at the event. Bradbury collected the most unlikely gold medal in the history of the Olympics - Australia's first Winter Olympic Gold medal.

Bradbury tells an amazingly inspirational story of triumph over adversity, of how he underwent years of obsessive training, pain, setbacks, sacrifice and life-threatening injuries and of how he armed himself with the information and tools he needed to achieve this amazing success.
