BusinessEDGE is a comprehensive two-day workshop for owners and managers of grazing enterprises. It’s specifically designed to improve financial literacy and business skills.

BusinessEDGE workshops have been run across northern Australia since 2010 with over 500 participants completing the course so far. This course follows from that experience and has been modified to have specific relevance to southern Australia, while still retaining all the key financial and business principles.

Each participant will receive a full set of background and course notes, a hardcopy of the PowerPoint presentation used for teaching, and a USB drive with a suite of spreadsheet based decision support tools used in the course.

What you will learn:

  • Why your income tax return is of limited value in business decision making.
  • How to set up and use management accounts.
  • How to interpret financial statements and understand what they are saying to you.
  • Understanding the key profit drivers for the whole business, the herd and the flock.
  • How to manage financial risk.
  • How to allocate capital in a rational manner for a better return on the investment.
  • and much more.

Presenter: Simon Vogt, Rural Directions Agribusiness Consultant
