The OnBoard program was developed by GrainGrowers after recognising the depth of talented growers capable of making significant contributions to the sector, yet lack of grower applicants for industry boards.
The program is comprised of hard and soft skills training by expert facilitators as well as funding participants to complete the Australian Institute of Company Directors course.
The program will be made up of three modules with each module being delivered by a different facilitator/expert.
MODULE 1 Honing the Hard Skills. This module is about preparing for the board selection process and your first board appointment. It will look at areas such as developing a Board CV, using critical analysis tools and understanding Director responsibilities.
MODULE 2 Sharpening the Soft Skills. This module is about developing the intangible skills that effective board directors possess such as the art of influencing and speaking with authority.
MODULE 3 Governance Training. The participants will complete the Australian Institute of Company Directors course.
