Business Fundamentals Workshop – Emerald

Get back to doing what you love.

Do you dread the thought of a day in the office? Does the bookwork leave you feeling frustrated because you know you could be more effective, but not sure how?
You’re not alone. Most people on the land would rather be doing the good stuff – getting out in the paddock or spending their precious time with family. But the bookwork won’t do itself…

This is why we’ve developed the RCS Business Fundamentals Workshop. This three-day workshop will give you a solid handle on all the necessary business stuff while showing you how to become more proficient, organised and effective, so you can spend less time in the office and more on the things that make you happy.

Using your own information, you’ll begin implementing what you learn straight away – no waiting until you get home to put new processes in place. You’ll also complete your own draft budget for the coming financial year during the workshop. Suitable for all skill and confidence levels. To really cement the connection between production and profit in your business, this workshop is best attended by the people who are responsible for the outside stuff, as well as the inside stuff.

Price:
First-person from a business – $2,142
Second and subsequent people from the business – $1,045

Take the first step towards regaining control of your time by registering for the Business Fundamentals Workshop today. Places are strictly limited to ensure adequate support for participants.
