Marcus Minds Sessions

Marcus Minds Session

The Marcus Minds Project was developed by the College to help our students, alumni, farmers and rural professionals to learn new techniques and skills to deal with the challenges of farming and agriculture, and to help them realise their full potential as professionals, individuals and community members.

The Marcus Minds sessions will run before the Marcus Connect functions and are a chance for you to work with one of Australia’s leading sport performance consultants, Mr Kris Hinck, to explore what can we learn from the world’s best performers in sport and business about being Healthy, Wealthy, Happy and Wise.

In 2024, the College will be running Marcus Connect Sessions ahead of select Marcus Connect Tour functions. Please keep an eye out for upcoming sessions.
