In­dus­try lead­er­ship drought

Seymour Telegraph - - LOCAL CLASSIES - The wine and grape in­dus­try en­cour­ages and pro­motes young peo­ple to be fu­ture lead­ers.

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.
