Keynote Speaker – Maggie Beer AM

Maggie Beer is not just an Australian food icon, she’s an essential ingredient in any culinary discussion on food and flavour. For over 40 years Maggie has had a remarkable career; author of 10 cook books, awarded Senior Australian of the Year in 2010, South Australian of the Year in 2011, appointed a member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2012 and made a Doctor of Business honoris causa from Macquarie University in 2013.

Maggie’s career encompasses farming, food production, television presenting and advocacy, and in 2016 Maggie was awarded an honourary  doctorate by Uni SA for her contribution to South Australian tourism. 2014 saw the beginning of the Maggie Beer Foundation, the primary focus is to radically change food practices in aged care, to improve the emotional wellbeing of each and every person. Maggie is working at both government and industry level to improve standards of food cooked and served in residential aged care facilities. Join us at the Metro North Aged Care Conference in October, where Maggie Beer will share the Foundation’s journey thus far and strategic course of growth in place to create the
evidence that will drive policy and culture change for the benefit of older people in residential aged care.
