Young guns on home stretch for grain project
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.
YOUNG LEADER: Nick Panizza, from Williams, WA, is an AGLP member.
