About our keynote speaker, Callan Daley

Callan grew up in Central Queensland, 100km north-west of Longreach on a cattle station. He studied a dual degree of Engineering and Biotechnology for 18 months at the University of Queensland before taking six months off to help manage the workload on the family properties and reignite his passion for agriculture. Callan is dedicated to sharing the stories of the land and is a 2015 ABC Heywire winner and 2019 Heywire Mentor.

Callan attended EvokeAG 2019 as a Future Young Leader and shortly afterwards, began as a Field Technician for an AgTech start-up called MEQ Probe. Over 5 years Callan went from being the first employee to the Business Development Lead of a company with over 30 full-time staff. Callan is also a member of the Beef Australia Next Gen committee tasked with organising the Next Gen program for Beef Week 2024. This has all led to Callan being an extremely passionate advocate for rejuvenating rural and regional Australia by helping improve the language used within and around agriculture and influencing an increase in the pride we have for such a vibrant and versatile industry.
