Dalene Wray AM

We are thrilled to have Dalene Wray AM joining us as a guest speaker and workshop holder at this year’s Channel Country Ladies Day in October.

Dalene grew up in the outback Queensland town of Birdsville, and has since lived, worked or studied overseas for half her working life.

She started her career as a radiographer in regional Australian hospitals and in hospitals in the United Kingdom before spending three seasons in Europe as a tour guide, and is a linguist who has studied Spanish, Chinese and French abroad.

She joined OBE Organic in 2003. Between 2009 and 2015 she gained invaluable international business experience whilst living in Beijing and then Hong Kong, driving business opportunities in Asia and the Middle East.

As Managing Director of OBE Organic, Dalene is a major force for improving the sustainability of Australian agriculture by driving change, innovation and digital adoption & she acts as a role model for the rest of the industry. She has been a strong advocate of causes, such as mental health, indigenous reconciliation, diversity & inclusion. With grit and smarts and compassion, she has made a difference.

She is a champion of both people and planet, and we can’t wait for Dalene to take the stage and share her inspiring journey with us.

Main Stage Presentation: Life, Love and Leadership
Dalene shares with us her experience as a female role model in her industry, and the importance of staying connected to those you love, and living life to the fullest.
