TIAH is proud to be supporting the exciting new Oxford Farming Conference Inspire Programme, for individuals who demonstrate leadership potential and have never attended the event before.
The Programme will offer fully-funded grants to 18 individuals to attend the Oxford Farming Conference from 5 to 7 January 2022.
It will deliver a rich programme of networking, bringing together those who may not otherwise have been able to attend the event, and are at the start of their leadership journey or looking for their next challenge.
TIAH Chair, David Fursdon said of the partnership:
“When TIAH launches early next year, we will seek to develop professionalism and lifelong learning amongst people working in farming and growing across England. Our values are very closely aligned with those of the OFC Inspire Programme, in that our activities are built upon the ethos of professionalism and personal development, so we are very pleased to be lending our support to the programme and we wish the participants every success.
OFC Director and Inspire Programme leader, Emily Norton, said:
“I was lucky enough to attend my first OFC through a job off-farm, but as the OFC Council, we are acutely aware that many future stars of our industry will not be in the same position. The Inspire Programme is intended to be one of the main routes through which we can tackle that.”
