One of the Guild’s recent new recruits is Lizzie McLaughlin who currently works as a graphic designer and marketing executive at Vencomatic UK.
She is a true optimist, with real ambition, driven work ethic and has the ‘always smiling’ kind of attitude.
Her background in design and English language alongside her strong interest in feminism and, more recently, working in agriculture, bird welfare and the environment, has meant that joining the industry has given her the opportunity to make a difference.
Over the past six months, she has worked closely with women across different sectors, from farmers to project managers, and shared their story through editorials, videos and social media. Not only has it been inspiring to speak to empowering females but to encourage those outside of the industry to consider a career in agriculture.
In addition, she has recently been elected on the Women in Agriculture Scotland Committee (WiAS) where she hopes to continue supporting females across the industry.
She hopes that she can bring her passion and enthusiasm to the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists and strengthen her network and skillset.
