Horticulture Australia Limited (HAL), in conjunction with Agrifood Skills Australia has developed a multi-industry leadership program targeted at developing the business and leadership skills of the next generation of Australian horticulturists.
Industry showed strong interest in personal development and training, with a remarkable 120 applications to the inaugural program.
With such a high volume of high-quality applications received, nominating 50 finalists was an immensely challenging task for the selection panel.
“The selection process was difficult”, said Mr John Lloyd, CEO of Horticulture Australia. “The quality of applicants from across the sector was exceptional and covered the breadth and depth of our 40 industries”.
“We have invited 50 current and future leaders to participate in targeted executive coaching and workshop programs, which will begin in the next two weeks.”
About the Next Generation Leadership Program
The program is funded by Horticulture Australia through the Across Industry fund, and AgriFood Skills Australia, with matched funding from the Australian Government.
The program aims to improve the ability of growers and other industry members to lead, guide and provide strategic direction for Australian horticulture. The program will provide current and emerging leaders with the training, business tools and experienced support required to achieve individual, business and industry growth objectives.
Elements of the Next Generation Program will also be available to industry through our website, webinars, social media platforms and newsletter. More information is available at the website www.horticulture-nextgeneration.com.au.
