Revolutionising Agricultural Training: Agri Leadership Week 2023
Agri leadership week is back, and MDS is thrilled to be participating in the event for the 3rd year running! Hosted by the home of skills, careers and professionalism in agriculture and horticulture, TIAH (The Institute for Agriculture & Horticulture), the event is set to be bigger and better than ever.
As we come together to celebrate the importance of agricultural training and development, we invite you to join us for an unforgettable experience. Get ready to learn from the best in the business and explore exciting new opportunities across all areas of the industry.
Agri Leadership Week brings together industry leaders, experts, and professionals to share their experiences and knowledge. It’s a time for networking, learning, and exploring new opportunities.
As well as TIAH and MDS, there are a range of forward-thinking and collaborative organisations taking part in the event:
- The Worshipful Company of Farmers
- The Farmers Club Charitable Trust
- The Institute of Agricultural Management
- Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust
Agri Leadership Week will showcase the voices and experiences of some of the best and brightest in the industry and detail how training helped them in their leadership journey. CEOs, business leaders, policymakers, educators, and industry experts will all provide valuable insights on how we can work and grow together. This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals to learn from some of the industry’s most successful and experienced professionals and gain insights into the latest trends and developments. TIAH will signpost participants to the vast range of career development opportunities available to individuals of all ages and experiences, helping to level up the sector.
But why is a culture of training and development so important in the agri-food and fresh produce industry?
There are many reasons why investing in training and development is crucial, both for businesses and individuals.
For businesses, training and development can help to improve productivity, increase employee satisfaction, and boost innovation. By investing in their employees’ skills and knowledge, businesses can stay competitive, develop new ideas and products, and attract and retain top talent.
For individuals, training and development can open up new career opportunities, enhance their skills and knowledge, and increase their earning potential. It also provides a sense of personal and professional fulfilment and can help individuals to feel more confident and empowered in their work.
But perhaps most importantly, a culture of training and development benefits consumers of the products produced within the industry. By investing in the skills and knowledge of those involved in the agri-food and fresh produce industry, businesses can ensure that they are producing high-quality, safe, and sustainable products that meet the needs of consumers.
So how can you get involved in Agri Leadership Week?
There are many ways to participate, whether you are an individual or a business. You can follow TIAH and the other participating businesses throughout the week to join in with the campaign. Various exciting activities are taking place, including interactive polls, case studies, webinars, and the launch of TIAH’s new comprehensive web page of agri-leadership course information.
