AWDT Future Focus – Blenheim

Planning your farming future – together.

As farming partners, have you discussed your farming future? Are you on the same page about how to get there?

Future Focus brings sheep and beef farming partners together to achieve their business goals and aspirations – using a team approach to business planning. The programme equips and supports you to decide what’s most important in your future, then use that to plan for your business – recognising partners working together is vital to success.

Held over two months and guided by our expert facilitators, this programme is a chance to take time out to work purely on your business instead of in your business and learn from other farmers. 

Programme content

  • Develop a business vision and goals – step-by-step.
  • Create an action plan with specific outcomes.
  • Systems for staying on track with your plan.
  • Tools to boost team performance.
  • How to involve other partners, banks, advisors.
  • Barriers to success and strategies to overcome them.

Who can attend?

Open to all sheep and beef farming partners – couples, owner/manager, father/daughter or similar.

The investment to attend two full days dedicated entirely to your business is just $295 + GST per farming partnership.

“Doing the Future Focus programme has given me enormous confidence – we are in the right place as a couple and it’s exciting business. We’re always carrying big plans around in our head and it was an opportunity to get both our plans down on one bit of paper.” David Kelly, Future Focus participant
