YOUNG agricultural professionals are being offered the chance to hone their leadership skills through a one-day leadership training session.

The Future Farmers of Yorkshire, a group backed by registered charity the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, is preparing farmers for a period of change at the Pavilions of Harrogate on the Great Yorkshire Showground on November 5.

The training course will help participants to develop self-awareness about their own leadership style and to understand the impact this has on others.

“We are determined to help develop the leaders of this region’s agricultural sector and empower our members to face the future with determination and confidence,” said Alastair Trickett, chairman of the Future Farmers of Yorkshire.

“That is why we have organised this full day’s leadership training course.

“By taking part, you will find out what is it like to be on the other side of ‘you’ and you’ll learn tools on how to get the best from others through support and challenge.

“These qualities are going to be crucial for the next generation of farming leaders and we want to do what we can to ensure they have the right opportunities to develop their skills.”

A key part of Future Farmers of Yorkshire’s mission is to inspire and develop young professionals in Yorkshire to lead the region’s agricultural industries to a thriving future.

There are 15 places available on the leadership training course and strict social distancing will be in place during the session.
