Future rural leaders call

TASMANIAN Leaders are partnering with the Australian Rural Leaders program for people living on the Tasmanian East coast and Flinders Island. It is suitable for anyone above the age of 18, who is interested in building long-term drought and climate resilience, developing their own leadership skills, and becoming better communicators.

The free event will be held over two sessions over Thursday, November 10 to Saturday, November 12 at Spring Bay Mill in Triabunna, and Sunday December 4 to Monday December 5 at the Panorama Hotel in St Helens.

If you are engaged in your community or wanting to influence your communities future, you are most likely already practicing leadership. The activities on this program can give you a better understanding of leadership and tools to help you work with others to achieve better outcomes. While it might take you out of your comfort zone and test your collaboration skills, this program equips you to manage challenging situations and prepares you to step-up. All activities are based on scenarios specific to your region to give you a deeper understanding of your community.

We are seeking a diverse range of participants from different backgrounds. You can emerge from the program connected to a network of forward-thinkers ready to drive positive change. Director Australian Resilient Centre Paul Ryan and Angela Driver will be facilitating the event.
