The future for rural industries has never been more challenging. The domination of food supply by multinational companies; changing consumer attitudes; increased demands for countryside access and changes to government and political representation, nationally, EU wide and internationally, are just some of the obstacles the industry is facing.
Attending this course you will develop an 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.
Cost: Financial assistance towards fee costs for the course is available.
Limited funding support is available through the Worshipful Company of Farmers.
