You might have noticed a buzz on your social media feeds this week around #AgriLeadershipWeek, which runs from 16-20 May 2022, but what exactly is it?

Agri Leadership Week sets out to highlight the value of management training opportunities in the farming sector.

A study from the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) showed that even a small amount of leadership training can return significant benefits; suggesting that for every £1 spent on training, businesses could see a return of £13.

The campaign is organised by:

  • AHDB
  • Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust
  • Institute for Agricultural Management
  • The Worshipful Company of Farmers
  • The Farmers Club Charitable Trust

So, how can you get involved?

Look for the #AgriLeadershipWeek hashtag on Twitter and share your own success story.

You can also enter a competition to win a 121 mentoring session with an industry-leading mentor to help further your development.

To enter, all you need to do is make a pledge on how you will make a positive change to improve your leadership skills.

And don’t forget you can sign up for leadership and development courses at The Council for Awards of Royal Agricultural Societies website.
