Lead Exploration and Development (LEAD) program - Group 2

The Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD) program is for growers to develop their skills in leading their industries and their own businesses. It is a collaboration of industries – melon, pineapple, banana, avocado, passionfruit, strawberry, persimmon, mango and lychee. All these industries will come together to learn and share their experiences.

The program consists of two residential workshops and a series of webinars. The three day workshops will be conducted in Canberra and Brisbane. You can join Group 1 or Group 2 depending on your availability, but you need to commit to both workshops in your group. 

The cost of LEAD is free with accommodation provided. You must contribute towards your travel costs.
