Paul Martin, 2016 Kellogger

“The Kellogg programme has been a key part in my governance journey. I’ve developed a number of networks through the course. Those networks have supported me and inspired me to continue my growth both professionally and personally.”

Paul Martin

Paul is a self-employed Agribusiness Consultant working under the Headlands banner, with clients throughout the Northland region. In addition to his consultancy work Paul is involved in a number of governance roles within the Dairy Industry and Bee Industry. Locally, Paul is the President of the Whangarei Bee Club, and a Trustee of Reconnecting Northland.

Paul’s 2016 Kellogg research topic focused on ‘How New Zealand dairy farmers can thrive in the face of milk price volatility.’

Graeme Peter, 2020 Kellogger

“The connections and learnings I have gained from doing a Kellogg are incredible. I feel very privileged to be part of the course and in particular the calibre of my cohort.”

Graeme Peter

Graeme is the Regional Food Safety and Assurance Manager for Fonterra in Northland. He works with farmers in Northland on animal welfare, food safety and assurance claims on farm.

Graeme will graduate from the 2020 Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme at the end of November. His Kellogg research topic is ‘Corporate Social Responsibility of Aotearoa Dairy Farmers – the Current Situation and How We Win.’ This body of research focuses on the four pillars of corporate social responsibilities (economic, legal, ethical and philanthropic).

Graeme’s drive is to keep Aotearoa dairy farmers and their families as leaders on the world stage, in our farm systems and animal welfare. Graeme says “The Northland Dairy sector faces many challenges and my Kellogg project has helped me bring a wider New Zealand and international view to these issues and has also provided access to incredibly talented and informative people.”
