Jessica Skilbeck


For almost a decade Jessica has been entrusted to manage some of Australia’s biggest agricultural brands and events. Think Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, Australia Lot Feeders’ Association (ALFA), the Merino Company and Stock & Land (Fairfax Media) to name a few.

At ALFA, the peak body for the grain fed cattle industry, Jessica was responsible for managing all membership communications and stakeholder engagement including the seamless execution of two of the industry’s largest events – BeefEx and SMARTBEEF attracting more than 500 delegates.

Operating based on the mantra ‘cool heads will prevail’, Jessica’s calm and considered approach makes her someone you want on your team – especially when the stakes are high. Did we mention Jessica was tasked with managing the livestock pavilion for the Royal Melbourne Show, Victoria’s largest community event, which attracts around 500,000 visitors each year?

It’s undeniable Jessica has an innate understanding of and a genuine passion for regional Australia. Raised on a cattle property near Benalla, North East Victoria Jessica’s love of the land has never wavered, spending her university holidays wrangling livestock as she completed a Bachelor of Business (Agribusiness). She was an Emerald Grain 100 Women in Australian Agribusiness nominee and winner of the 2014 Woolworths Agriculture Business Scholarship.

Now living in Griffith NSW, she remains firmly connected to the agribusiness sector through her work at Sauce and volunteer roles, previously serving on the Board of the Future Farmers Network, and the Executive Committee of the Victorian Farmers Federation Young Agribusiness Professionals.

Sauce’s favourite bit about Jessica:

A 400 pax industry event in Brisbane, multiple regional roadshows and a conference in Echuca….Jess jumped into Sauce event planning, RM Williams and all, from the moment she arrived. Exactly the kind of can do team attitude Sauce is renowned for!

Jessica’s favourite bit about Sauce:

With the love for all things rural, regional and agricultural, Jess has found her fit at Sauce by working with clients that specialise in these areas, and with a team that cares as much about this space as she does!

Jessica’s favourite Sauce success:

Jess jumped straight into building relationships with clients across the agricultural sector, working on a number of events projects in unison.
