Supporting the next generation of Beef Industry leaders – GenAngus Future Leaders Program Applications Open

November 12, 2018 3:55 pm

Applications are now open for the Angus Youth and Achmea Australia inaugural GenAngus Future Leaders Program, the first of its kind to support the next generation of beef industry leaders.

Angus Youth and Achmea Australia have partnered to give twelve Angus Australia members the opportunity to participate in the GenAngus Future Leaders Program held in Sydney, from 20-22 February 2019.

The GenAngus Future Leaders Program is a three-day intensive workshop, after which the participants will embark on a 12-month leadership journey, where they will receive information and guidance to ensure their continued growth and development in their business area.

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 to help them start their own beef business or grow their current business, and to give them the tools and knowledge to pave the way as future industry leaders.

The workshop will cover several topics including business financials, beef business benchmarking, mindset, beef supply chain, risk and liability and succession planning. Presented at the workshop by current industry leaders, the program has been developed to give the participants the advantage and knowledge to expand themselves in the industry.

Angus Australia Events and Youth Development Officer Candice Liddle looks forward to the GenAngus workshop.

“The Inaugural GenAngus Future Leaders Program will be an excellent experience for young Angus Australia members who are looking to expand their existing knowledge about the beef industry.

“Angus Australia and Angus Youth are pleased to support and assist the future leaders of the industry to help them with their endeavours as beef business owners.”

Partnering directly with farmers to identify and help mitigate on-farm risks, Achmea Chief Executive Officer Emma Thomas says the GenAngus Future Leaders Program articulates Achmea’s strong history of excellence and knowledge sharing, spanning almost two centuries.

“The GenAngus Future Leaders Program provides the resources to give the next generation of Australia’s beef and agricultural leaders the best chance to develop and learn. It will help shape the industry for years to come,” Mrs Thomas says.

Successful applicants will be supplied with accommodation, meals and education sessions, with their only personal requirement to cover their travel expenses.

Applications for the GenAngus Future Leaders Program close on 28 November 2018.
