How to build a bloody good business

Strong and resilient dairy farming businesses are more important now than ever before. We are facing significant change, both in our sector and beyond, and making sure our business can survive these changes and come out thriving is critical.

In this webinar series we consider the qualities of a resilient business and look at what strategies you can work on in your own business to be as prepared as you can be to face the known and the unknown.

Our strategic partners from ASB, Xero, Figured and McIntyre Dick and Partners (part of NZ CA Limited) answered questions around how great financial and business systems will help your business thrive. The webinar series was led by people and strategy specialist Lee Astridge from No8HR.

People are, arguably, the scarcest resource for our businesses in today’s economic environment and that makes harnessing talent a critical part of having a bloody good business.
