Is your grazing business providing you with more than just a job?

Business EDGE is a comprehensive two-day workshop for owners and managers of grazing enterprises.

It’s specifically designed to improve financial literacy and business skills.

Business EDGE workshops have been run across northern Australia since 2010 with almost 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.

The course is taught on a case study basis to bring more meaning to the underlying principles and with all the concepts taught and discussed well-grounded in a practical example from the case study.
