Help shape and develop Future Business

Business Management

Does your job involve the business and commercial side of growing apples and pears?

We believe it’s important for our Future Business program to have as much industry input and direction as possible, which is why we want you for the new Business Reference Group.

This is an opportunity to work with APAL’s Future Business team and other industry members to have your say and provide valuable insight into the guidance and planning of future activities.

As Future Business develops, it’s important to have as much industry input and direction as possible. To achieve this, the Business Reference Group will act as a sounding board to help formulate Future Business projects, including training and development initiatives.

Who are we looking for?

At APAL, we’re acutely aware of the demands on growers’ time, which is why we’re seeking participation from those involved directly on the business and commercial side of the operation (finance, operations etc.).

Participants will have a strong business background, solid understanding of what makes a successful agri-business work and an appreciation of where the opportunities for improvement might be.

To help guide you on what your contribution might look like, areas of interest would include:

  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Business processes
  • Procurement
  • Legal
  • General management

This is a great opportunity to develop the ‘next generation’ of industry and a diverse representation of people, from every growing region, are encouraged to nominate.

For more information or to show your interest in joining the Business Reference Group, please email Manager, Future Business Richelle Zealley, or call on  0438 364 728.
