Succession planning

For family agribusinesses

Succession, or future planning, is a critical element in ensuring a family agribusiness survives the test of time and the family’s wishes are achieved. Finding time to talk about a succession plan can be difficult given everyday business and family challenges and often it is a potentially sensitive topic. 

We help agribusiness families communicate and work together and come up with a succession plan that suits everyone’s needs and expectations.

Agribusiness Family Succession Planning Australia

Solutions, not confrontations

Farming families value relationships and tend to prefer solutions, not confrontations. Possessing the skills of a mediator allows Louise to foster a less adversarial approach when working with families. Non-confrontational, solution-based future planning is vital for families who need to continue to work and live together for generations to come.

Successful future planning involves working with families to achieve personal, family and financial benefits for each generation.

Statistics show that families who start the process of future planning early have a much higher chance of achieving a positive outcome for all family members, as well as their agricultural businesses.

Louise has a genuine understanding of family agribusinesses and the relationships between family members through her experience as a Lawyer, Certified Practicing Accountant and Agribusiness operator.

Louise’s skills as a previously Nationally Accredited Mediator assist families through the intergenerational transition by providing direction and clarity of goals, increased financial awareness and security, and increased opportunities for the business.
