RCS Business Fundamentals Workshop – Charters Towers, QLD

March 10 @ 8:00 am - March 12 @ 5:00 pm


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.

The workshop covers four key areas:

🌱The four types of money
🌱How to read a balance sheet
🌱How to understand a profit and loss statement
🌱Understanding a stock/crop flow
🌱How to connect what happens in the paddock with what happens in the office
🌱The RCS 3 Secrets of Profit
🌱The critical difference between taxation and management accounting
🌱Cashflow analysis and economic analysis
🌱The key profit drivers / key performance indicators to know and use.

🌱Can you go paperless (or less paper)?
🌱How set up ‘one-touch’ mail handling
🌱Stress Free Office Management (SFOM)
🌱What to file and how
🌱Setting up folders on your computer
🌱What software options are available

🌱Data entry without going mad
🌱Record keeping – what and how

🌱Doing your own budget
🌱Doing another budget scenario that would increase profit
🌱Using a budget to actual report
🌱Gross margin /enterprise analysis
🌱Benchmarking and KPIs
🌱Reforecasting throughout the year

You’ll receive expert tuition and support from leading trainer and farm business analyst, David McLean. RCS farm business coaches may also be in attendance depending on the number of registrations to ensure all participants get the attention they deserve.
