Seafood Grimsby and Humber Host BBQ to Celebrate Successful Future Leaders Programme

Seafood Grimsby and Humber hosted a celebration for their successful Future Leaders Programme with a special BBQ event at Healing Manor, Grimsby. The event brought together Future Leader participants, industry delivery partners, and key stakeholders to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the programme during the past year.

The Future Leaders Programme, an initiative aimed at nurturing the next generation of leaders within the seafood processing and trading industry, has successfully concluded its latest cohort. The programme has now provided over 60 participants with comprehensive training, mentorship, and hands-on experience to develop their leadership skills and seafood industry knowledge.

“We are incredibly proud of the accomplishments of our Future Leaders Programme participants,” said Skills sub-Board Chairperson, Emma De Beer, representing Seafood Grimsby and Humber. “This BBQ event is our way of celebrating their hard work and dedication, and also thanking our industry delivery partners who have been instrumental in making this programme a success.”

The BBQ celebration featured a talk from Dr Eleanor Adamson representing the Fishmongers’ Company about the Company’s activities in skills, schools education and research. Also, the attendees heard from the Alliance’s own Schools Ambassador, Jo Woodhouse, about opportunities to engage with local schools including, leadership roles in Governance as well as, Julie Waites who manages the Master Fishmonger Standard on behalf of the Alliance.

Emma De Beer went on to say “The support and collaboration from our industry delivery partners has been vital to the success of the Future Leaders Programme. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all our partners for their commitment to developing future leaders and contributing to the growth and sustainability of the seafood industry.”


The next three Future Leaders programmes will be delivered twice in September 2024 and then in January 2025. For further information contact Andrew Couper – acouper@lincoln.ac.uk
