Lincoln University – Kellogg Alumni Summit
Organisation: Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme
Grant Number: L17011
Grant Amount: $15,000
Grant Type: Capability Development Grants
The Kellogg Alumni Summit event held in May 2017, was the platform to launch the Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme alumni engagement programme, a long term desired initiative to reconnect and activate the potential of its 750 plus alumni & recognise significant programme milestones.
AGMARDT recognises the value of the alumni engagement programme to drive some of the other outcomes supported with the NZ Rural Leadership Trust and for the industry.
Inspired by disrupting the old and taking a new approach, the Summit format was unique in that four inspiring leadership keynotes were interspersed with presentations from clustered alumni groups, sharing the evolution of leadership environments, styles & learnings, reflecting shifts across the three plus decades.
“The summit was a fantastic follow up to the Kellogg Rural Leadership programme. It was great to meet fellow alumni and be inspired by their journeys, while gaining fantastic insights from the diverse range of high quality speakers we were fortunate to have. It was a very worthwhile event and I am looking forward to the next event” Sarah Crofoot, Kellogg Summit Participant.
