Angus Australia and Achmea Australia gear up for GenAngus

November 1, 2018 9:52 am

Angus Youth and Achmea Australia will partner to give twelve Angus Australia members the opportunity to participate in the Inaugural GenAngus Future Leaders Program in Sydney, from the 20th to the 22nd  of February 2019.

The GenAngus Future Leaders Program will be a three-day intensive workshop, after which the participants will embark on a twelve-month leadership journey.

The program is the first of its kind developed by a breed society, designed to support the young members of Angus Australia aged 18-40 with starting their own beef business, to grow their current business and to give them the tools and knowledge to pave the way as the future industry leaders.

The workshop event will cover several topics, those being business financials, beef business benchmarking, mindset, beef supply chain, risk and liability and succession planning.  All these topics have been chosen in order to give the participants the advantage and knowledge to expand themselves in the industry and will be presented at the workshop by current industry leaders.

Following on from the initial workshop, the participants will then be given information and guidance over a twelve month period to ensure that they have continued growth and development within their chosen capacities.

The three day workshop will include a special dinner function with an inspirational guest speaker, who will inform the participants on how they have grown in their business area.

Participants will be fully supported with accommodation, meals and education session, with all they required to do is get themselves to Sydney for three days.
