Beyond the Bale : March 2014
46 Jillaroos, overseers, stud masters and wool agents were amongst the 22 participants at last month’s professional development course known as Breeding Leadership. The AWI event, held every two years, involves participants from every state who are trained in areas such as people management, corporate governance, strategic planning and time management. More than 100 young Australians have now attended the course which fosters the future leaders of the wool industry. Thomas Pengilly from Esperance, WA who completed this year’s Breeding Leadership said, “This course has given us the opportunity to access great information and mentors to unlock our potential. This will further our growth and increase what we can offer to the wool industry into the future.” Many previous participants now hold leadership positions within business and industry. Dan Korff, Board member of Future Farmers Network and Stud Sheep Overseer at Hazeldean Merino Stud in NSW, who completed the course in 2012, said, “Breeding Leadership was a terrific opportunity at the beginning of my career to be able to network, learn and share experiences with a really good group of like-minded industry people. Elements of the course have been very helpful with both strategic thinking and day to day management.” Held at Clare in South Australia, the week’s events involved a mix of both classroom and field-work with excursions to wool processing facilities, stud and commercial operations as well as an exposure to a variety of non-woolgrowing enterprises. Speaking to the attendees and current industry leaders at this year’s event, AWI CEO Stuart McCullough said how he relished the diversity and passion within the wool industry. “The wool industry can be anything for you. From becoming a highly successful woolgrower, shearer, agent or exporter to a processor of wool, manufacturer of garments, a world-famous designer to a leading researcher; the wool industry has it all for you,” Mr McCullough said. Breeding Leadership is held in conjunction with South Australian based consultancy Rural Directions together with sponsorship by ANZ Agribusiness and Future Farmers Network.
