If you think you could help

lead farming into the 21st

century we want to hear

from you. But hurry!

COULD you help lead farming and rural industries into the 21st century? Have you the leadership potential to help agriculture and rural businesses meet the many challenges of the next century?

If the answer is yes, then the Challenge of Rural Leadership 1998 could be for you. Its a two-week course designed to equip participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to develop as successful leaders in their businesses, in the farming industry and in rural community.

The course fee is £1560 inclusive of accommodation. But scholarships are available to suitable candidates from the Worshipful Company of Farmers.

The residential course takes place between Nov 15-27 at the Seale-Hayne Faculty, Newton Abbot, under the direction of Martyn Warren, head of the land use and rural management department.

Interested? Then, complete and return an application form to Seale-Hayne. Applicants must gain the nomination of at least one of the following: a member of the Worshipful Company of Farmers, a previous course member, a senior ADAS or SAC officer, the principal of an agricultural college or the current course director.

Candidates chosen for interview will be asked to attend a selection procedure at the Farmers and Fletchers Hall, 3 Cloth Street, London EC1 on Sept 10, 1998. If youve got it in you to lead our industry, this course will bring it out. See box for details. Good luck.

Shows and sales; part of the rich heritage of farming. But how will farming develop in the 21st century and meet future challenges?
