Business Resilience webinar series

The Sustainable Ag Team from North West Local Land Services is bringing you a 6 part Business Resilience Webinar series.

We have booked a suite of industry professionals to present practical tools and information on farm business management to help you make more informed decisions through planning, forecasting, and reviewing the profitability of your business over time.

In response to feedback from previous workshop events, we will also have sessions on effective communication, WHS compliance, and livestock trading.

Through this series we hope to provide some broader farm management and farm business support to producers across our region, to complement the technical production information that we provide.
