The 2019 Hort Masterclass is fast approaching the halfway mark!
Described as a mini-MBA, the course is an intensive 10-month professional development program for those looking to accelerate their careers within horticulture.
The course is delivered by the University of Tasmania, with input from international research providers. Every years, it brings together more than 30 individuals across Australian horticulture, including five from the nursery industry in 2019.
This year’s cohort will complete Term 2 on June 30, followed by a short break before their next face-to-face workshop in Brisbane on Friday, 12 July. Here, the group will tour Rocklea Brisbane Markets, before travelling to the Sunshine Coast to visit several horticultural businesses. The tour will finish with a workshop at the SurfAir Conference facilities, where selected students will present on their chosen assignments
One of the students selected was production supervisor at Yarralumla Nursery, Nathan Wells, who will present on his nursery gross margins assignment.
