AWI hosts development course 'Breeding Leadership'

Jillaroos, overseers, stud masters and wool agents are amongst the 22 participants at the professional development course known as Breeding Leadership this week.

The bi-annual Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) event involves participants from every state who will be trained in areas such as people management, business innovation, 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.

Speaking to the attendees and current industry leaders at the course dinner, 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."

Many previous participants now hold leadership positions within business and industry.

Dan Korf, Board member of the Future Farmers Network and studmaster at Avington Merino Stud in Victoria added, "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, this week's event involves 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-wool growing enterprises.
