WA farm busi­ness­women will gather from as far north as the Gas­coyne River and as far south as Esper­ance at the Part­ners in Grain WA In­spire Sum­mit on March 27.

In its sec­ond year Part­ners in Grain WA is ex­pect­ing more than 200 busi­ness­women to at­tend the sum­mit which will cover busi­ness skills and well­be­ing.

PinG is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion of­fer­ing rel­e­vant train­ing for WA broad­acre farm­ing in var­i­ous work­shops re­gion­ally.

PinG WA chair­woman Bron­wyn Fox, from Dan­dara­gan, said the sum­mit would be more peo­ple­fo­cused com­pared to the first sum­mit in 2016.

“This year we’re fo­cus­ing more on in­dus­try, well­be­ing and team man­age­ment, so how to get the best out of every­one work­ing on your farm,” she said.

Al­though PinG’s work­shops are for every­one in agribusi­ness the bian­nual In­spire Sum­mit is for busi­ness­women.
