Farm Business Transition and Succession workshops

Over half of New Zealand farmers identify succession planning as an issue for them, their family and their farm business.

RMPP has developed a workshop series that takes farm businesses through the transition and succession of a farm business. 

Participants are required to attend three half day workshops spread over a three-four-month period followed by a one-on-one clinic. 

Workshop one
Understanding the family farm business recognizes the importance of understanding what all family members want and need from the transition and succession process.  This is the essential first step in the development of the family farm business transition and succession plan. 

You’ll gain and understanding of the connections and systems that exist or need to exist in a family business (individuals, family, management and ownership).  You’ll identify how to manage family relationships to enable a successful transition of both the business management and ownership without compromising family happiness of business success.

Workshop two
Management of the family farm business focuses on establishing and maintaining strong management foundations in the family business.

Gain an understanding of the structures and processes to have in place to build a successful and profitable family business.  You’ll identify what structures and processes you need to investigate and implement to secure the management foundations of the family farm business.

Workshop three
Ownership of the family farm business covers all aspects of farm ownership models.
You’ll will leave this workshop knowing that you have all the documents in place that are required to ensure your wishes are carried out or, you’ll have a greater understanding of where you can get them. 

Clinic
As part of this workshop series, you'll have the opportunity to attend a one-on-one clinic with a facilitator and experts.  This is an opportunity to discuss your individual/family issues.

The workshops are limited to eight farm businesses and are fully funded by RMPP - there is no cost to participants.
