Industry leadership drought
Leadership in the wine and grape industry is being fostered through a program called Future Leaders, and applications for Future Leaders 17 are now open to those who are ready to step up and be next in leading Australia’s grape and wine community to future prosperity.
Future Leaders is funded by Australian Vignerons, Wine Australia and Winemakers Federation of Australia and its alumni includes winemakers, grapegrowers and viticulturists, business managers and marketers, suppliers and researchers.
Anne Duncan, global knowledge and people development Manager at Wine Australia, is overseeing the 2017 program and said a leadership drought is one of the biggest risks the sector faces.
‘‘We need leaders who can be catalysts for innovation, who can adapt to the inevitable changes that our sector will face in the future, and who can drive the continual evolution of the Australian wine story,’’ Ms Duncan said.
