Building business skills for future success

Are your business skills equivalent to your stockmanship and practical skills?

While excellent stockmanship and practical skills are important, they are no longer enough to ensure the business can provide for all of the needs of the family into the future. The skills required to manage successful pastoral businesses for the next 30 years will be quite different to the skills needed over the last 30 years.

One thing that distinguishes the owners and managers of successful beef businesses is that they have acquired, and are continuously developing, the skills necessary to successfully run multi-million dollar businesses.

The Business EDGE workshop was developed by Meat & Livestock Australia to meet producer demand for these improved business skills, and is the primary business skills development product in the EDGE network suite of training packages.

Bush AgriBusiness is holding six workshops in the first half of 2017. This is a significant professional development opportunity for those working in the pastoral industry in Northern Australia. The Business EDGE workshops are delivered by experienced industry professionals and led by Ian McLean, who co-developed the Business EDGE material and is the lead author of the Northern Beef Report.
