The beef industry is in good hands if the group of young beef industry professionals that attended the recent GenAngus Future Leaders Program, proudly supported by Achmea Australia, is the yardstick for measuring future success.
After eighteen months of delays, both the 2020 and 2021 cohorts of the GenAngus Future Leaders Program were finally able to attend, albeit via ZOOM, the highly anticipated program, as they look to start their own business or further develop a business.
The program was designed to challenge the participants business perceptions, increase their knowledge and confidence and inspire them to put into practice the outcomes they gained from the event.

It is hoped that in the new year that Angus Australia and Achmea Australia will be able to host a face to face component for these future leaders to allow them to make personal contact with their peers and many of the presenters to allow them to further develop their industry contacts and network with like minded individuals that they can turn to when looking for inspiration.
