Generating future success

Reaching goals and fulfilling personal ambition will become easier for New Zealand's rural professionals this October.

Enrolment is open for Generate, a free programme that up-skills agricultural professionals and leads to a nationally recognised Certificate in Rural Leadership.

Hundreds of rural professionals around New Zealand have already taken advantage of this programme. "Graduates tell us they value the opportunity to add skills to their 'tool-kit', as well as the networking opportunities that Generate creates," says Clarissa Wallace, Generate co-ordinator. "The opportunity to focus on where they are at personally or professionally gives them direction."

Sharon Paterson, a Generate graduate, manages sheep and cattle studs with her husband and is an FMG rural manager.

She particularly valued the presentation and people skills she took from the workshops.

"I have been in farming all my life. I looked to the programme to help me develop more confidence in speaking with people. Generate exceeded my expectations," says Sharon.

"Each workshop gave me a different skill, many of which I have applied to my professional life and I have seen great results."
