Horticulture Training Company set up to boost leadership

A new training company offering management and leadership programmes specifically for horticulturists, by horticulturists, has been launched by MorePeople and Horticulture Week.

The Horticulture Training Company aims to plug the gap in the provision of personal, management and leadership skills that in the past have not received the same attention in the industry as technical skills.

MorePeople director Guy Moreton said: "The past 10 years have seen significant structural changes across all our sectors. Companies have had to acquire additional skills and the most successful have invested significant amounts. However, for many there's not been quite the same attention paid to developing the personal and leadership skills their management teams will need to make sure these investments deliver returns."

The Horticulture Training Company has programmes suitable for all levels. The first programmes, which begin in October, include Finance for Non-Financial Managers, Negotiating Skills and Solutions-Driven Account Management.

Additional programmes from January include An Introduction to Leadership, Building & Developing an Effective Team, Presentation Skills and Coaching.

HW associate publisher Elliot Thomas said: "Training and development is central to the success of a business and the design of the one-day workshops means delegates can apply their learning immediately, giving horticulture businesses an immediate return on investment."
