Kellogg Rural Leaders Programme report series
The Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme develops emerging food and fibre leaders to help shape the future of New Zealand’s primary sector. The programme develops leaders with the skills, confidence, awareness, and networks to think and act strategically.
It is for farmers, foresters, fishers, growers, and those who have a desire to meaningfully contribute to their rural community, food and fibre production, processing, or profession.
Up to 25 people per intake, meet over several weeks to:
- Develop leadership skills
- Build the confidence to take the next step in their work
- Learn how political, economic, social, cultural, and physical forces impact the primary sector
- Enhance self-awareness
- Establish networks with key influencers in New Zealand business and beyond.
Lincoln University has been involved with the Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme since 1979. The University recognised then that an enhanced leadership capability would be a critical factor in determining the future performance of primary production in New Zealand.
The course has been a huge success and past Kellogg participants have demonstrated the benefits of the course with their own success in leadership positions locally and globally.
The Programme is delivered by The New Zealand Rural Leadership Trust, which in turn is supported by Strategic Partners: DairyNZ, AGMARDT, Beef+Lamb NZ, The Mackenzie Charitable Foundation, FMG as well as programme, service, regional and academic partners.
