If your farm is not one that holds regular meetings, this is your encouragement to start small… but start.

That’s because research shows that business that hold regular meetings are more profitable than those that do not.

We’re not talking about a morning tailgate chat on what’s ahead — that’s an operational meeting to start the day — we’re talking about strategic planning meetings, financial meetings, big-picture operational meetings, and annual general meetings with all stakeholders present.

The idea of formalizing meetings doesn’t have to be overwhelming. For this episode of the Mind Your Farm Business podcast, host Shaun Haney is joined by Heather Watson, executive director of Farm Management Canada, to discuss what makes a successful meeting, the value in holding different meetings, and where to draw the line on social and family time vs a business meeting.
