The Gardiner Dairy Foundation will bring together Australia’s key industry players for its annual Dairy Leaders Luncheon this Thursday, 2 March to explore the theme “Riding the exponential wave of change”.

Committed to fostering thought leadership, the Gardiner Dairy Foundation has secured exponential technology expert, Kaila Colbin as the keynote speaker to challenge guests to question how technology can revolutionise Australia’s dairy industry.

Guests will enjoy Kaila’s insights from her extensive involvement at Singularity University, providing predictions on how artificial intelligence, robotics, and nanotechnology can be adopted to solve some of the dairy industry’s biggest challenges.
