AgriLeadership Week

AgriLeadership Week

Leadership is increasingly vital to the success of farming and growing businesses as they reckon with continuing volatility.

This year's AgriLeadership Week, starting on May 19, will be finding out how people started their journey on leadership training, and what it's meant to them.
AgriLeadershipWeek is set to showcase the benefits of leadership development for current and aspiring leaders in farming and growing who are unaware of, or are yet to make use of, any leadership training.

As part of the campaign, we are highlighting a range of development opportunities designed to improve you as a person and as an employer and manager of others.  

Why is this important?

Farmers and growers face a continually evolving set of challenges, with market volatility and environmental and welfare standards being key among them.

Navigating these changing times will require strong leadership and effective management of farm teams.

We hear from a range of farmers, growers and others in the industry about what their training has meant to them.

How you can get involved

We're asking farmers and growers across the industry to share their stories about how they got started in leadership training.

Whether that's them recognising a need to train to help adapt to change, or if they've been recommended a course, we're wanting to find out about their experiences, what they've learned and what they're bringing to their own farms as a result of the courses.

We'd love to hear your stories, too, so share your learnings on social media and be sure to tag in #AgriLeadershipWeek so we can find you, too!

Equally, we'll be taking over the Farmers of the UK X (formerly Twitter) account, so be sure to like, follow and engage in discussion with us there, too.

Key issues examined in webinars

As part of AgriLeadershipWeek, we hosted two webinars to tackle key issues for leaders and managers in agriculture and horticulture.

In one, our Membership Manager, Linda Christoffersson, spoke to Amie Burke, Inclusivity Programme Manager at IGD, about the benefits of reverse mentoring, where leaders and managers learn from those with the technical skills

The other webinar saw our Head of Partnerships, Tess Howe, speak to Nuffield scholar Navaratnam Partheeban and Carl Atkin-House, Chair of IAgrM, about how farming and growing can benefit from working with an increasingly diverse workforce.
