Growing Leaders say:

>> Growing Leaders has encouraged me to assert myself and believe in my own opinion
>> Rural Training Initiatives provided opportunity to see and take the next step, take a risk and have a go
>> The workshops showed me how to take a fresh look at my day-to-day operation and my role as a leader and embrace it; to work on my business with confidence by becoming involved in all facets of our family business
