Glitz and glamour at NFYFC’s Chair’s Reception
"This weekend is fabulous because its competitions, democracy and socialising at its best," said the new Chair of Council Hannah Talbot as she officially opened Annual Convention 2015 at a special drinks reception sponsored by Massey Ferguson.
Members of Council, supporters, sponsors and special guests were invited to share in a drinks reception at the Toorak Hotel hosted by Hannah before they joined the main party in the Riviera Centre.
Campbell Scott, Massey Ferguson's Director of Sales, Engineering and Brand Development, introduced Hannah at the reception and said he had spotted Hannah afew years earlier in a copy of Ten26 when she had first been elected as Vice Chair. He was impressed that three women had been in the top position in the last three years, and that Hannah was bringing her experience as a Head of English teacher to the role.
He said: "Isn't it remarkable that we have someone like that in our midst tonight. I don't know what the pupils are like at your school but that is a formidable challenge. Together with the business of agriculture and farming I think you'll agree that education is one of the most fundamental industries we have got."
Hannah went on to thank all of the NFYFC sponsors, her Council team and Vice Chairs and wished everyone a fantastic weekend in Torquay.Watch the full video below.
