At Rural Leaders, we are developing the leaders who will create the future of our industry.

About Rural Leaders

At Rural Leaders, we are inspiring generations of leaders to influence positive change in our agribusiness and rural communities.

Rural Leaders is focused on developing the leadership capability that enables our rural communities to flourish, and keeps New Zealand at the forefront of global agribusiness.

Our role is to nurture and grow New Zealand’s two foremost leadership programmes for the primary sector, while strengthening connections between our network of alumni members.

Our philosophy: Leading from the middle

Leading from the middle is about authenticity. It is about leading through action, inspiring from within our rural communities – and creating an impact that reverberates around the world. Our cause is greater than any one individual. Let’s come together for the greater good – and transform our industry for the better.

“The function of leadership is to create more leaders, not more followers.” —Ralph Nader
