Bought up in the family business where a number of outside or independent peoples skills where used, alongside a ‘light bulb’ moment I experienced on a course in Australia has led us to have our business overseen in an advisory capacity by a number of independent people including an independent chairperson.
These people bring different skills and perspectives to the business and have a history in agricultural governance. It is a part of our business I find extremely stimulating and rewarding.
I am excited about the opportunity to undertake the Fonterra governance development program as I see it as a chance to expand my skills in this area while learning from and meeting like-minded participants.
