UPDATE: Sorry everyone - the workshops have been cancelled due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus. We are hoping to reschedule and will keep you updated once we have some news.
We thank you for your understanding as we prioritise the health and wellbeing of staff, participants and the community as a whole.
Finance and People Management for Successful Farming Businesses is the focus of a half-day workshop - Money and The Mind - to be hosted by FarmLink at TAIC and featuring the return of the ever-popular Carmen Quade, accompanied by Esther Petrie.
Carmen partnered with FarmLink last year to run the highly successful Farm Budget Masterclass series in 2019, including a session at the FarmLink Open Day.
The Money and the Mind workshops will run twice on Wednesday, March 25, with Carmen and Esther guiding you through a range of topics including –
• How and why to prepare an annual report for your business
• How to structure finance
• Negotiating interest rate reductions
• Alternatives to bank finance
• Identifying if drought assistance suits your business
• Building great relationships with staff and contractors
• Understanding and diffusing tense meeting situations
• Respond to conflict or tension within your business or family group
• Managing challenging interactions professionally
• How to protect your own mental health and wellbeing during tough times
Participants can choose to attend either the 9.30am-12noon session, or 1pm-3.30pm. A combined lunch for all participants will be held from 12-12.45pm. Individual enrolments are welcomed, while farm partners are also encouraged to attend, to share the learning and ability to take the information back to the business.
FarmLink gratefully acknowledges the financial support from Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network through the Australian Government’s PHN Program and Empowering Communities program. Rural Financial Counselling Service NSW Southern Region is also supporting the sessions.
