Shannon Speight
Shannon is the co-founder & CEO of Black Box Co. Shannon's career is anything but linear; born in Mount Isa she followed her parents across Australia for their work before beginning her studies with a focus on becoming a large animal vet. It was during her uni days that she stopped and reflected, and ultimately deciding to defer her studies saw Shannon heading to Northern Australia where her love for cattle and the northern pastoral industry really shone through.
But it hasn't all be high tech for Shannon, as a qualified Vet, her work saw her playing an integral role in the Northern Genomics project where ultimately while on her mentoring trip as part of the Zanda Mcdonald Award saw her life changing opportunity really uncover itself.
Shannon's accolades are plenty; the 2019 joint Zanda McDonald Award Winner, more recently being listed by Forbes as one of the 30 under 30 Asian region Entrepreneurs… mind blowing!
Her story is one of tenacity, of rolling your sleeves up, of taking time to learn about others and what the problem is on hand, and what really makes Shannon so incredibly unique, on top of being able to fit in everything, is her willingness to give back.
As always, thank you to this episodes sponsor who really help me make it possible to bring these conversations to life. LAWD are the specialists in agribusiness valuations and transactions. You can find out more at www.lawd.com.au
