ARLP Course 31 Scholar, Greg Zillman | Session Updates

The Australian Rural Leadership Program (ARLP) is run by the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation (ARLF) and provides an opportunity for leadership development using challenge-based and experiential learning.

This year, ALFA and MLA has awarded a scholarship for a lot feeder to attend ARLP, an investment of $55,000.

Greg Zillman of Beef Connect Feedlot, QLD, has been awarded the grain fed beef industry scholarship for Course 31 of the ARLP and will share his experience on the program through regular updates as his course progresses.

Accompanying Greg in this cohort are individuals from a diverse array of sectors, including agriculture, aquaculture, healthcare, local government, retail, research, and community services, all with a common drive to create opportunities for rural, regional and remote communities and industries to thrive.
