The Department of Primary Industries director-general Scott Hansen was a special guest when NSW Farm Writers’ Agribuzz met at the Sydney Royal Easter Show on Wednesday night.

Mr Hansen gave a candid view of the like skills he learned to get where is, including his time as a young man working in a pub, learning how to deal with customers and be considerate!

He also revealed his 10-year stint with  Meat and Livestock Australia gave him the knowledge base to deal with overseas markets and how to sell produce in America, especially Australian beef.

He said agriculture was the one international platform that often informed the world of Australia.

His aim was to provide a DPI service that engaged with staff, met customers needs, and met goals such as encouraging agriculture to expand and grow in its total worth. He also learnt its okay to appoint people who are smarter than you! (So you can surround yourself with great and diverse ideas).
