RCS Business Fundamentals Workshop – Emerald, QLD

March 16, 2021

Do you dread the thought of a day in the office? Does the bookwork leave you feeling frustrated because you know you could be more effective, but not sure how?

You’re not alone. Most people on the land would rather be doing the good stuff – getting out in the paddock or spending their precious time with family. But the bookwork won’t do itself…

This is why we’ve developed the RCS Business Fundamentals Workshop. This three-day workshop will give you a solid handle on all the necessary business stuff while showing you how to become more proficient, organised and effective, so you can spend less time in the office and more on the things that make you happy.

The workshop covers four key areas:

This workshop will give you practical, actionable steps you can take to enable more effective use of your office time and quicker, more confident decision-making, so you can spend more time doing whatever it is that you love – quality time with family, being out in the paddock or maybe contributing to your community. What will you do with your new-found freedom?

  • A comprehensive course manual
  • Expert tuition from a leading farm business analyst and trainer, an experienced accountant, and knowledgeable coaches
  • Electronic templates and calculators

Using your own information, you’ll begin implementing what you learn straight away – no waiting until you get home to put new processes in place. You’ll also complete your own draft budget for the 2021/22 financial year during the workshop.

Suitable for all skill and confidence levels.

To really cement the connection between production and profit in your business, this workshop is best attended by the people who are responsible for the outside stuff, as well as the inside stuff.
