By combining strong personal development, sector leadership content with exposure to organisations, agricultural operations and community networks, participants develop their path toward becoming the innovative problem-solvers and leaders that are so needed in the sector to combine sustainability, Matauranga Maori and the opportunities offered through the Primary Sector.

Places are limited to 12 : Be in quick!
