There has never been a more important time for agri-professionals to build and use better communication skills. It was a great start to 2018 to have another group of eight East Anglians to do just that. We gathered together for three intense days of tips, techniques and tasks – otherwise known as communication skills training.
TRUST AND INVEST IN COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS TRAINING
It is the legacies of two truly great characters in the East Anglian farmscape that funds the training. John Forrest and Felix Cobbold farmed in different eras. What they had in common was a visionary attitude to agriculture. Both believed good communications were key to progress. Each year for the last nine years, the John Forrest Award committee – formed in memory of remarkable Suffolk farmer John Forrest – chooses to invest (with co-funding from the Felix Cobbold Agricultural Trust) in training agri-professionals in better communication skills.
The John Forrest Memorial Award Committee has decided to support another course in 2019 with funds from the Felix Thornley Cobbold Agricultural Trust, and funded jointly with The Morley Agricultural Foundation.
