TWELVE young beef industry representatives from Australia and New Zealand are set to take part in the GenAngus Future Leaders Program, a three-day intensive workshop.
The event, to be held from February 20 to 22, marks the start of a 12-month leadership journey, designed to support Angus Australia members to either start their own beef business or grow their current business, and develop skills to become future beef industry leaders.
The workshop will cover business financials, beef business networking, mindset, beef supply chain, risk and liability and succession planning, with presentations from industry professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds.
“The crop of young producers that have been selected for the GenAngus Future Leaders Program are an excellent group of representatives of young people in the beef industry, working towards developing their careers in the field,” Angus Australia events and youth development officer Candice Liddle said.
“I look forward not only to working with them at the GenAngus intensive workshop, but also continuing to assist their career and individual development with their 12-month leadership journey following on from the workshop.”
Through a multi-year partnership with Angus Australia, specialist farm insurer Achmea is supporting the program, open to members aged 18 to 40.
Achmea CEO Emma Thomas said successful applicants were selected through a competitive and merit-based assessment.
“Committed to protecting and enhancing agricultural communities, Achmea is proud to support the development of the next generation of future beef industry leaders,” Mrs Thomas said.
“By fostering their development, we will help strengthen the beef sector and boost the opportunities for the next generation of leaders, their families and communities right across Australia.”
