Leadership in the North

Eight pig unit supervisors received leadership awards at the end of the first BPEX leadership programme for the North and Midlands.

Their training, on the BPEX/Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Development Programme, has helped them boost pig productivity and staff motivation on their units.

A special student of the year award went to Dean Brammer who has been recently promoted to manage one of Midland Pig Producers’ units at Branston, Lincolnshire. He said: “The course has made a real difference to me in my new role. It’s helped me communicate better with my team and helped get us working more efficiently together.”

George Trowsdale is assistant manager for Dent Ltd on their outdoor unit near Malton. “The numbers of pigs born alive have gone up and mortality is also down since I started the course. I think it’s mainly through better planning and organisation and I’m also more confident discussing tasks and routines with staff to help us get better results.

“The six training days on the course also gave us chance to talk to other managers. It’s useful to hear how they do things on their units.”

The ILM course is designed for anyone responsible for leading people or who will take on the responsibility in the near future. The training is provided by Alistair Gibb of Cedar Associates.
