Young guns on home stretch for grain pro­ject

Central and North Rural Weekly - - DROUGHT -

ELEVEN young Aus­tralian farm­ers are hard at work com­plet­ing their in­dus­try projects as part of GrainGrow­ers’ 2018 Aus­tralian Grain Lead­ers Pro­gram (AGLP).

GrainGrow­ers CEO David McKeon said the par­tic­i­pants had dis­played an over­whelm­ing pas­sion for their own per­sonal and pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment through­out the AGLP and it had been a plea­sure watch­ing them de­velop their knowl­edge and skills.

“We look for­ward to hear­ing about the re­sults of their projects at their grad­u­a­tion from the pro­gram in Oc­to­ber,” Mr McKeon said.

Par­tic­i­pants from across Aus­tralia have been work­ing on their in­di­vid­ual lead­er­ship goals and in­dus­try projects with the guid­ance of the AGLP fa­cil­i­ta­tor, Ru­ralS­cope’s Jo Eady, through­out the last nine months.

The AGLP in­te­grates skill devel­op­ment, in­dus­try en­gage­ment and pro­ject work to fa­cil­i­tate devel­op­ment and cre­ate an alumni of proven in­di­vid­u­als for the fu­ture lead­er­ship of the Aus­tralian grains in­dus­try.

Par­tic­i­pants have com­pleted two of three face-to-face com­po­nents and will grad­u­ate at GrainGrow­ers’ 60th an­niver­sary din­ner in Dubbo on Oc­to­ber 17.
