Leading the Tasmanian wine industry

To develop core leadership skills in the Australian wine industry, the Wine Industry Leadership Program (WILP) has been delivering leadership programs across Australia for the past three years. The program has now been delivered in nine regions, graduating more than 100 industry personnel, with feedback from graduates being extremely positive. WILP is now setting its sights on Tasmania as the final delivery location of the program.

WILP is a regionally focused and practical program designed for you, your business and your industry. It has been designed to help people in regional wine industries: • develop new skills to assist in growing individual regional businesses • develop their skills for personal development • become more networked • increase involvement in the local industry • improve the effectiveness of people in decision-making roles

The program is open to people of any age, experience or gender and is tailored to the needs of participants. WILP consists of three days of workshops at a cost of $298 per person. The Tasmania course with be held at the Tailrace Centre at 1 Waterfront Drive, Launceston and will run from 8.30am to 5.30pm. Day 1 and 2 will be on Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 March 2009 and day 3 will be held approximately three months later.

Mentoring is provided between days two and three to support participants achieve the goals they set for themselves.

This program is funded by Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation (GWRDC) and the Department of Primary Industries Victoria.
