Tasmanian producers to sharpen business skills

Tasmanian red meat producers can sharpen their financial literacy and business management skills at a two-day Business EDGE course being held on 3-4 July 2019 in Launceston.

Developed by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and delivered by Holmes Sackett, Business EDGE is designed to enhance producer knowledge and skills to improve business efficiency and profitability.

The course is delivered in a supportive and motivating environment, to help producers gain confidence and to better understand:

  • the financial information in their business
  • key profit drivers
  • how to assess and manage business risk
  • how to establish the influence producers have on their own business performance.

The workshops will use relevant southern business management scenarios to understand business principles and financial management practices, meaning producers will not be required to bring their own financial data with them.

More than 500 producers have completed the Business EDGE course since it was first launched in 2010.

Cost is $1,500 per person plus GST, or $1,250 per person plus GST for two or more people from the same business.

The course will be held at Balmoral on York and registrations close on Friday, 21 June 2019. To register visit:
