Women in Agriculture: Caithness – Succession Planning


Do you have a succession plan in place for your business? Do you know what the hopes and dreams of everyone involved in the business are?

Planning for your future is important for everyone – regardless of age or the role you play within your business. However, it is often the last thing that anyone shares or discusses.

This workshop will outline the many benefits of having a succession plan. It will also equip you with some tactics so you can begin discussing this sometimes-sensitive topic with your family; and prepare your  business for the future.

When families start the conversation before there are health, money or other tensions, we can see rationally and see things from other people’s perspectives. This opens up doors and opportunities, and people have time to adjust. Plans can be made to accommodate and adapt. People relax, feel happier and more in control. This interactive workshop will look at how to start those difficult conversations, give tips to avoid conflict and provide you with a list of things to consider when succession planning.

Heather Wildman of Saviour Associates will lead the workshop. She will emphasise the importance of having a vision for the future of businesses and will highlight the positives of developing a succession plan. She will also share some practical tips and advice to those yet to develop a succession plan for their own business.

Lunch will be provided, and booking is essential for catering.
