Dairying women feed mind and body at annual conference


Click for big version.

Food personality Nadia Lim and motivational speaker Darryl Sabin will challenge dairying women to live their lives to the fullest by nurturing both mind and body when they present at the Dairy Women’s Network’s annual two conference in Hamilton from 19 to 20 March.

Former MasterChef winner Nadia Lim leaves her kitchen to share her passion for preparing food that is untainted by additives or fancy packaging.

“Even  when I was 12 years old I knew the best food came from our own garden,  and I stand strong by this philosophy – eat food from the ground, sea or sky, and don’t tamper with it; what nature provides is nutritious and delicious as it is,’ said Nadia.

Nadia has a BSc in Nutrition and a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics from Otago University. Dietetics is the science of how nutrients affect health. However, Nadia said the key to eating well is not something that can be simply measured in a science experiment.

“I believe the key to eating well is enjoying your food. And if we make small shifts in how we eat the benefits to the wider community will be tremendous.”

With that in mind, Nadia’s inspiring, yet practical hands-on presentation will focus on how and what to eat for a busy lifestyle, ensuring you get all the nutrients and energy you need.

At only 23 years of age, Darryl Sabin’s is a story of survival and recovery from a catastrophic brain injury that nearly claimed his life while playing rugby on ANZAC day in 2009. 

“I played rugby since I could walk and I was good at it. The concussions started when I was 15 and everyone told me to stop playing, including my dad. But I had my dream to become an All Black. I really should have listened to my dad,” said Darryl.

When his brain started bleeding on ANZAC day 2009 Darryl fell into a coma and couldn’t be revived. The doctors said he wouldn't survive.  His father Mike refused to accept that.

“I told Darryl if he was still there he needed to fight and I would fight with him,” said Mike.

And Darryl did fight. He has re-learned everything – to walk, talk, eat and move his limbs.

His presentation ‘get busy living’ captures his rehabilitation journey with inspiring video footage and a heartfelt summation of five life-lessons he has learned along the way.

“Darryl’s story changes lives and people can’t help but be deeply inspired to live their lives to the fullest when they see what he has overcome.  Don’t ever underestimate the fight of the human spirit,” said Mike.

Other key note speakers include managing director of Fisher Funds Carmel Fisher,  ASB chief executive Barbara Chapman and sports psychologist David Galbraith.

The third ‘Dairy Woman of the Year’ award winner will be announced at the conference gala dinner, which will be hosted by journalist and head of Maori TV, Carol Hirschfeld. The winner will be awarded a position on the prestigious Women in Leadership 12 month programme run by Global Women, which is valued at $25,000.The award is sponsored by Fonterra Milk Supply.

RD1 is the conference’s national sponsor.

Early bird registrations for the conference are now open. Women working in the business of dairying can register at www.dwn.co.nz  or phone 0800 396 748.
