Jane Milburn specialises in advocacy and publicity. Recent projects include managing media issues for AgForce Queensland,
leading the public awareness campaign for the Australian Banana Growers’

as president and later served as vice-president of the national
body, the Australian Council of Agricultural Journalists.
