Elders joins the Art4Agriculture team to support rising leader Emma Ayliffe

We would like to welcome Elders to the Art4Agriculture team. Elders will be joining the Cotton Research and Development Corporation to support Emma Ayliffe to undertake advanced training as part of the Young Farming Champions program

“Emma has a unique role within Elders,. Half of it is doing research, development and extension and the other half is agronomy. Because Emma is off farm she understands the production side of things in the field, and by doing trials the growers are getting the research done on their farm. It also works well for the ag-tech companies because if they get a new product we can straight away send it to our client base. Clients seem to get the uptake of the product quicker because of Emma’s role. She’s a self-starter, she’s got plenty of drive to make things happen, she always meets deadlines, and she builds relationships really quickly,” says Heath McWhirter Key Accounts Manager (Agronomy) at Elders

Emma will join 10 of the YFC alumni undertaking facilitation and Changeology workshops with Les Robinson. These workshop will help the YFC learn how to facilitate with confidence and bind people together to explore new options rather than fight to maintain the status quo i.e. how to be an effective changemakers

Emma will also have access to Greg Mills and Gaye Steel  who will be working with the YFC to hone their media and presentation skills for diverse audiences. These workshops will have a strong focus on the importance of ‘being real’ in media interviews. The YFC will identify what drives them, develop presence and harness their power to create impact.

We are very excited to have Elders on board and look forward to adding their logo to our list of partners
