Nic Conland : ODPG Conference Spotlight

Nic is a scientific storyteller, able to unpack complex theories for a broad audience. His background in analytical chemistry, combined with dairy sector experience and his work on climate-positive farming make him the perfect speaker to help us figure out how to manage our farming future in a changing world.

The ability to provide farmers a tool to transition to climate positive food production is essential for our stories locally in food production and internationally where communities are asking about the cost of climate change and attaching responsibility to agriculture.
