Cotton growers will have an opportunity to come together and discuss effective farm management strategies during the Better Business Management session at the Australian Cotton Conference, to be held on the Gold Coast in early August.
The Better Business Management session will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 6 and builds on the efforts of Australian cotton growers to continuously improve farm management practices.
The Australian Cotton Conference is packed with a number of practical and beneficial sessions for attendees from across the supply chain, but this session in particular will help growers to make better business decisions.
Attendees will hear from a panel of three leading rural producers from outside the cotton industry and within, including Queensland cotton grower John Norman, Queensland feedlotter Don Madden, and Northern Territory beef cattle producer Jane Armstrong.
‘Work on the business – not in the business’ is the theme of the Better Business Management session, presented by Rabobank. Topics to be covered include:
market access strategies
managing workforce challenges
the power of technology
managing input costs.
The 17th Australian Cotton Conference – Our Fibre, Our Focus, Our Future, will be held at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre at Broadbeach, Queensland, August 5 through 7, 2014.
