This event is a great opportunity to develop a close relationship with the Business School and potentially create training opportunities in business management that we can all use in our day to day work. This topic may not immediately appeal to the hardcore farming members, however we need to ensure they are aware of the potential resource on their doorstep and how it can be applied positively to their business needs. This demonstrates YIELD’s potential to add value for our members and differentiate our offering from other groups, supported by the RNAA and others.
