About this workshop

NOTE: This course is a face to face workshop, delivered by a presenter at a physical venue.

Get back to doing what you love.

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:

1. KNOWLEDGE (education about basic
business principles). Learn about:

✔ The four different 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.

2. SYSTEMS (giving you an
awareness of what’s out there).

✔ 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 (pro’s and con’s)

3. WITB (doing it all)
✔ Data entry without going mad
✔ Record keeping – what and how
✔ BAS/PAYG/Super

4. WOTB (using it to make decisions)
✔ 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 (key performance indicators)
✔ Reforecast

Using your own information, you’ll begin implementing what you learn straight away – no waiting until you get home to put new processes in place. You’ll also complete your own draft budget for the 2021/22 financial year during the workshop. 

Suitable for all skill and confidence levels. 

To really cement the connection between
production and profit in your business, this workshop is best attended by the people who are responsible for the outside stuff, as well as the inside stuff.
