APPLICATIONS are now open for industry stakeholders to take part in the Beef Australia 2018 Graeme Acton Beef Connections mentoring program.
Launched three years ago at Beef 2015, the program is designed to create opportunities to develop the future of the industry by enabling young people to maximise their potential in their chosen sector of the beef supply chain.
The program allows participants to develop their industry leadership skills, while giving them access to an industry mentor to help them achieve their project expectations while also participating in Beef Australia 2018 in Rockhampton.
Successful applicants will develop their skills through the design, development and implementation of a project that will be beneficial to the growth of the individual in their personal and professional role in the beef industry and to the Australian Beef sector.
“The program provides an opportunity for young industry stakeholders to establish a mentoring relationship with high-calibre, senior industry leaders,” Beef Australia 2018 chief executive Denis Cox said.
“The aim of this relationship is to help develop the skills and knowledge that will enable these young industry members to become more effective in their current roles, to take on new and exciting positions in their career or family business, and to enable them to become effective future leaders in the beef industry,” he said.
Supported by Westpac Agribusiness, the mentoring program provides a legacy for the younger generation as they take steps to empower themselves and others.
Applicants from all over Australia are invited to join the successful program.
