Kellogg Rural Leaders Programme report series

 

The New Zealand Kellogg Rural Leaders Programme develops emerging agribusiness leaders to help shape the future of New Zealand agribusiness and rural affairs.

Through residential workshops, seminars and personal study over an 11 month period, up to twenty people who live and work in rural New Zealand meet to:

  • Develop solid leadership skills
  • Build the confidence to take the next big step in business, professional development, politics, industry governance or community service
  • Learn how political, cultural, social, economic and physical forces impact on New Zealand agribusiness
  • Enhance self awareness and awareness of the external environment
  • Establish networks with leaders from New Zealand and beyond

Lincoln University has been involved with this leaders programme since 1979 when it was launched with a grant from the Kellogg Foundation, USA. The University recognised that leadership would be a critical factor in the future performance of primary production in New Zealand. The course was an immediate success and past Kellogg participants have demonstrated the positive benefits of the course through their leadership positions in New Zealand and elsewhere in the world today.

The current sponsors of the Kellogg Rural Leaders Programme are Beef+Lamb New Zealand, DairyNZ, Deer Industry New Zealand, Pipfruit New Zealand and Zespri International.
