22 delegates to partake in Wool Breeding Leadership 2014
Dec '13
Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) and the Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders are behind the national initiative.

The five day professional development course explores themes of marketing, leading and managing people, corporate governance, time management and strategic planning and includes some time on farm.

Participants will travel to Clare, South Australia to attend the program. Plans for the 2014 program include a full day local business tour including the Michell wool processing facility.

The participants reflect the wool industry’s geographical diversity with all states represented. Commercial woolgrowers, stud businesses and industry service providers are amongst the participants together with an increase in female participation.

In 2014, AWI has offered a sponsored place at Breeding Leadership to Nicola Turner. Nicola was the winner of the AWI national breeding competition, the National Merino Challenge, and received this opportunity as part of the prize.

Dan Korff from Cooma in New South Wales took part in the course in 2012 and said it changed his perspective and way of doing business.

"Breeding Leadership was an awesome opportunity to meet like-minded people in our industry and learn a whole range of different leadership and management skills to help us take our industry into an exciting future! The contacts I have made and the development resources are never far from reach," he said.
