Setting the scene
Wade Bell, AG360, will outline the practical steps you can take to start you on the path of putting the right business plan in place. He will take you through the process to select a vision and goals that: fit your financial and personal aspirations, are SMART, are futureproofed, will flex in a changing industry environment, and will meet your needs going forward.
Maximising the returns from investment
The owners of our first case study farm have just gone through the process of analysing their business to make sure it delivers the best return on investment. Phil Journeaux, AgFirst, will talk about the process they followed. This involved: exploring ideas, developing a range of potential options, analysing the options, and selecting the right one for the business. AgFirst carried out a detailed physical and financial analysis for this business, we will take a look at the numbers.
Actioning your goals
Our second case study farmer, James (Kingi) Oakes, has put his excellent budgeting skills to good use to work on achieving his goals. He will share real-life examples about how he uses planning and budgeting to set targets, track progress, and adapt to change.
