The Rural Business School at Duchy College have run two "informal webinar" on the Challenge of Rural Leadership course so far in 2021.
This webinar was open to all those who have attended the CRL course in the past, those who had already applied for CRL 2022, those who had expressed an interest and anyone who had the CRL course on their radar and would like to find out more.
28TH JANUARY 2021
The speakers were all past participants of the course and included Terry Jones, Director General of NFU, Rachel Hallos, an upland tenant farmer from West Yorkshire, and Adam Bedford, North East Regional Director of NFU. Terry, Rachel and Adam shared their experiences from the course, highlighting how these skills have helped them and reflected on their role as rural leaders today. Richard Soffe, who chaired the webinar, also had input from the Master and the Chairman of Education of the Farmers' Company. A Question and Answer session followed.

8TH APRIL 2021
The speakers for the second webinar were again participants of the course - the 2019 CRL - Richard Bower, Lower Drayton Farm in Staffordshire and who is diversifying the family farm, and Gemma Hooper, Manager of the Surrey Docks Farm by the Thames in Southwark, London. They gave a wonderful insight of what they learnt over those two "life-changing" weeks and the differences it has made to them personally and to their business. A must see recording. Geoff Kerr, chaired the webinar, also had input once again from the Master. A Question and Answer session followed.
