Meat The Need NZ

New Charity launched by Wane Langford & Siobhan O’Malley

Wayne Langford and Siobhan O’Malley have just launched their new charity that allows farmers to donate fresh meat to help feed New Zealand’s most vulnerable.

Wayne joined Sarah Perriam on Sarah’s Country recently to talk about their latest venture ‘Meat The Need NZ.’

Wayne and Siobhan are both Kelloggers, Wayne completing the Kellogg Programme in 2014 and Siobhan in 2018. 



Nuffield International Agribusiness Summit

After our fantastically successful one day Summit alumni event in 2017 we promised you another one in three years (based on your preferred frequency). We are pleased to announce that our next Kellogg alumni event has been confirmed for 23 March 2020.

What is even more exciting is that we are combining this event with the Nuffield2020 International Event, as part of a one day International Summit being held in Christchurch and hosted by Nuffield NZ.  With a theme of Fast Forward – this is a day focused on future solutions showcasing new business models. There will be lots of discussion and debate with International and New Zealand speakers who are leaders in change and business solutions, that will inspire, provoke and challenge your thinking.

We know as Kelloggers you also love to reKonnect – so we are organising some alumni networking events around the Summit with the help of Canterbury Kellogg alumni including a cocktail function on Sunday evening. The details of other events will be announced shortly.

All we need you to do now is:

  • Diary this date – 23 March 2020
  • View the Summit Programme 
  • Get your Kellogg cohort together for a reunion
  • Register now for the Summit and get in fast to secure your accommodation
