What APEL has to offer

APEL (formerly APYL) provides its attendees with opportunities to create and develop networks throughout the supply chain. It also supports their development not only in technical and business-related areas, but also their leadership, management, and communication skills.

The program runs on an ongoing basis, rather than over a fixed term.

Meeting topics will be determined by participants, to ensure what’s being delivered is relevant. Examples of topics that have been covered in the past include:

  • Risk management and decision making
  • Pig nutrition
  • Farm KPIs and how to understand and manage them
  • Personality profiling and communication
  • Leadership vs management
  • Carcass breakdown and valuation
  • Insight into the supply chain
Who can get involved?

APEL is open not only to producers, but to members of the broader pork supply chain and service/sales industries.

There is no restriction on age of participants; as long as participants are emerging leaders and feel they will get benefit from taking part in the program, they are welcome to attend.

Similarly, there is no restriction on location; members of the pork industry from any/all states in Australia are welcome to attend, with some support available to help interstate participants attend.
