Alexandra (Tess) Camm
Nuffield Australia 2020 Scholarship winner
Tess Camm from St Lawrence, Queensland, receives a Nuffield Scholarship supported by The Yulgilbar Foundation. Tess will investigate: 'Incubating radical change within an organisation' - What are the conditions that need to exist to allow a breakthrough?
A fifth-generation grazier, Tess runs the successful branded beef company ‘Signature Beef’, a role that oversees the coordination and production of livestock to ensure carcasses meet market requirements and customer expectations, as well as new product development and sales. Tess holds a Bachelor of Business Management, and previously worked on her family’s grazing properties in Central Queensland.
"Within this study, I will be exploring my current network, and the Nuffield Alumni to gain exposure to businesses and people in agriculture who have radically shifted the trajectory of their business growth, and explore the appropriate measures for said growth.
Tess will share her findings with stakeholders across the supply chain. She will visit leading enterprises across Europe, USA, South America, China and South East Asia to inform her research.
