Introducing Erena Calder Hawkins, STAMP participants participating in the upcoming IFAMA 2024 World Conference agribusiness

21 May, 2024

The Agrifood Management Programme for Strategic Thinking (STAMP) is an AGMARDT (The Agricultural and Marketing Research and Development Trust) funded project that expedites the growth of #skills and enhances sector knowledge among our aspiring #agrifood leaders, empowering them to effectively apply these capabilities. STAMP is organized by FoodHQ, with academic support from Massey University

Ten of our STAMP participants will be participating in the upcoming IFAMA 2024 World Conference agribusiness-specific Global Student Case Competition — the only one of its kind globally — providing students and their universities a world stage to showcase future #primarysector leaders.

This year our participants will be heading off to the beautiful Almería, in Southern Spain, (17-20 June).
As we head towards the event we will be show-casing some of our outstanding STAMP participants.

Introducing Erena Calder Hawkins and her remarkable journey within our cohort.

Kia ora, my name is Erena Calder Hawkins. I have a passion for the #agrifood tech sector and a curiosity for learning. I am the research engagement lead at Sprout Agritech, NZ’s leading agrifood tech accelerator and early-stage investor. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Biotechnology (UoW) and a Master of Bioscience Enterprise (UoA). I enjoy the challenge of working with novel #technologies and identifying real-world problems to create meaningful impact. What excites me about STAMP is the exposure to the greater #agrifood sector and building awareness and knowledge on the challenges the sector faces.
I have enjoyed developing my #strategicthinking and #presentationskills during STAMP and I look forward to representing the programme at IFAMA in Spain this year. I hope to learn more about the European #primarysector and to further expand my international #networks while at IFAMA.
