About the program
The 2024 evokeAG. Future Young Leaders Program is designed to build the capacity and capability of Australian, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region’s future and emerging leaders, who are dedicated to the continuous improvement and prosperity of Australian agriculture and its value chain.
The program provides a platform for participants to share their innovations and research projects and demonstrate their passion for Australian agrifood innovation.
The program is dedicated to ensuring Australia is a leader in accessing and adopting, as well as developing and exporting, agrifood technologies and innovation, and recognising the role that young leaders play in supporting this.
What makes a Future Young Leader?
- Commitment: Leaders who are committed to Australian rural communities, their sustainability and advancement and are invested in the prosperity of agrifood innovation and related industries.
- Drive: Leaders who are motivated to promote a sustainable and innovative future for Australian agriculture and its industries, and are already taking steps to achieve this, whether that be through a research project, innovative development, or community initiative.
- Aspiration: Leaders who are ready for the opportunity to build their capacity, network and grow their ideas as individuals with an ‘exceptional edge’.
These five successful applicants have formed the 2024 cohort and will receive presentation-based mentoring from industry professional, Bryce Ives who will assist them in developing a strategy to achieve their goals at evokeAG. 2024.
Their mentor Bryce will work with the cohort to workshop their key messages, innovation, or research, determining a clear goal, and encouraging them to utilise the evokeAG. platform to showcase themselves and what they are trying to achieve.
Their post-event strategic planning with Bryce will be accompanied by a final targeted placement or learning and development opportunity.
