DECK Program Forum

11 October 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 12 October 2018 @ 12:30 pm

The DECK Program interactive forums hosted by WRL will provide professional development opportunities for anyone in the western rock lobster industry to strengthen knowledge and skills, foster relationships and networks, and to be inspired by industry innovations.

The DECK Program will tap into current knowledge and skills in people, invest in building their skills and capacity, and provide individuals with a broader understanding of the industry as a whole to ensure they can create more informed decisions and opinions about their industry career paths, fishing operations and business management. The forums also provide an opportunity for participants to discuss key challenges in the industry from their perspective.

Aimed at the industry’s next generation, the DECK Program provides a variety of interactive presentations and workshops covering a range of skills development from office efficiencies, industry innovation and technology to managing your business and the people who work with you.

The forums will run over two days, with a social dinner in the middle so you can develop your networks and relationships with others in the industry. The first forum will be held on Thursday 11th to Friday 12th of October 2018 in the Perth area (venue tbc) and again in March 2019. Each forum will cover different topics to provide long term professional development to the next generation in our industry.

Whilst expert presenters are still being confirmed, topics at the October forum will cover areas that concern your work – including the state of the industry, Office Management, Succession Planning, Technology and Innovation, and Benchmarking to name just a few. Once confirmed a full agenda will be provided to participants prior to the forum.
