CCA aims to inspire, empower and support young people passionate about the Australian beef industry and provide them with an opportunity to be directly involved through the NAB Agribusiness Rising Champions Initative.
Through the professional development workshop and attendance at the National Gala Dinner participant’s are given an insight into the Australian beef industry, Cattle Council of Australia operations, the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) operations and network with industry representatives, sponsors, state farming organisations and parliamentary figures.
The opportunity to broaden their interpersonal skills throughout the workshop allows participants to market themselves and learn how to represent themselves in a professional and clear manner.
2017 Rising Champion Kylie Stretton said of the program “The Rising Champion Initiative has introduced me to so many inspiring and supportive people across regional Australia.
The process has been invaluable in providing me with a much clearer picture of what I want the beef industry to look like in the future and what I can do to achieve those goals.”
If you or someone you know is passionate about beef then we encourage you to apply. Information on the Initiative can be found on the CCA website.
