Worshipful Company of Farmers – industry courses and events

The Worshipful Company of Farmers runs the Challenge of Rural Leadership course, which is a two week residential course delivered by Duchy College. This course tackles understanding and awareness of strategic issues likely to affect your own business, become a better motivator and communicator, help to increase the influence of the rural community, nationally and internationally and to gain a greater insight into the political, financial and environmental challenges affecting the future of rural industries. The Worshipful Company of Farmers provides some sponsorship for delegates.

 

Visit Duchy College Rural Business School for more info

 

The Worshipful Company of Farmers also runs an Advanced Course in Agricultural Business Management, which is delivered by the Royal Agricultural University. The objective of the course is to develop understanding of the business environment and to improve the capacity of individuals to operate effectively. This is done by interacting with influential business leaders, conducting case studies and by learning from the experience of other delegates.
