Beau Vernon At BestWool/BestLamb And BetterBeef

Beau Vernon, former Bass Coast footballer, coach and disability advocate, will be the guest speaker at the upcoming BestWool/BestLamb and BetterBeef dinner on 19 June at The Goods Shed, Ballarat.

Agriculture Victoria Senior Technical Specialist Lyndon Kubeil said Mr Vernon’s story will inspire sheep and beef conference-goers to tackle the challenges facing their farming businesses.

‘Beau became a quadriplegic after a collision during a country football game, yet he didn’t let his disability stop him from making a positive difference to the world around him,’ Mr Kubeil said.

‘People attending the dinner will hear Beau’s life story and his practical advice that shows how a positive mindset, and a team approach is key to overcoming any obstacle.’

Mr Vernon now lives in Queensland and was recently selected to play for the Australian Wheelchair Rugby team at the Paralympics in Paris.

He said was excited to be invited to speak at the dinner.

‘I understand that the industry has had its fair share of challenges recently and I know from personal experience that through challenge comes great growth.’

‘I’m looking forward to providing some ideas and my perspective on how to move forward in the face of these challenges,’ Mr Vernon said.
