Jacobsen initiative focuses on NZ's future turf managers
Body

 AGCSA Gold Partner Jacobsen recently held their its latest Future Turf Managers’ Initiative (FTMI) with the NZGCSA at Royal Wellington Golf Club (superintendent John Spraggs). The two-day educational event is aimed at up and coming greenkeepers who are focused on making the career leap to superintendent or course manager. This year’s delegates were Wendy Horneman (Pakuranga CC, Auckland), Adam Dyet (The Kinloch Club), Daniel Cawley (Whangarei GC) and Stuart Baird of Akarana GC, Auckland).

Focusing on personal and professional development, the FTMI uses the expertise of respected course managers, cross-industry training specialists and industry experts to mentor and educate the next generation of industry leaders. Mentors this year included current NZGCSA president Brendan Allen (The Hills GC) and host superintendent Spraggs. Delegates also got to listen to Dr Jack Fry who was a keynote speaker at the recent 31st Australian Turfgrass Conference.

The four NZ delegates join a cohort of over 60 greenkeepers from around the globe who have graduated from the Future Turf Managers Initiative over the past three years. During the two days the delegates experience sessions on human behaviour, identifying their own behavioural preferences, understanding leadership, developing strategies for motivation, conflict resolution and utilising business communication techniques.
