Welcome to the August edition of Kelloggers Konnect!
The Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme is celebrating its 41st birthday this year and we’re proud to shout out that we’ve successfully delivered over 900 participants through the programme since 1979.
And the great news is that we’re not stopping there. We are gearing up to expand the Kellogg Programme with the introduction of Kellogg regional courses starting in early 2021 – more on that to come in this newsletter.
Although it’s been a challenging year we’ve remained flexible as we continue to adapt our Kellogg course dates around the recent Covid19 lockdowns. Needless to say, we are pleased to now be back on track with the Kellogg Courses for 2020 and 2021.
