Dairy Women’s Network

Tasked with building authority and increasing brand equity across all communications and improving use of Dairy Women’s Network platforms and channels to increase engagement and build profile, enthuse successfully developed and implemented a communications marketing strategy with visual story telling at its core.

The Dairy Women’s Network is a kiwi not-for-profit organisation built on a can-do attitude that was established 20 years ago. With a small team based in Hamilton who are supported by two Regional Managers and Hub Leaders across the country the Dairy Women’s Network develops, facilitates and promotes events and initiatives for members to acquire industry-based knowledge and skills. It has a nation-wide network of members supported by the volunteer Regional Leaders who coordinate activity and events in their region.

VISION: enabling transformational change in agribusiness
PURPOSE: to empower farm businesses to thrive with knowledge and connections

Nine year old Lucy prefered the latest dairy farming catalogues to kid’s books, had her own herd, loved nothing more than helping out on the farm near Tirau in the Waikato but got upset if her dad didn’t include her in key decisions and says being a kid on a farm means you don’t have to worry about staying clean. This was her story… one of five we did for the Dairy Women’s Network as part of the Visual story telling series OUR PEOPLE.THEIR STORIES.
