Vanessa Kennedy – Industry Liaison Officer, Brisbane Markets

Vanessa liaises between growers and wholesalers to ensure outcomes and price expectations are met for both parties.

She discusses the career paths available working within a central market - from forklift driving, to marketing or gaining training in agriculture.

We hear a variety of success stories, such as Joe who made the change from being a school teacher, to working in sales at the markets which has given him the money and time to also start his own fireworks company.
