Farmers face unique problems when carrying out succession and business planning to ensure that their farm is protected for future generations.

This event will:

  • Set the scene on the current economy and make some predictions for the future;
  • Give you information on how to prepare a business plan for the short, medium and long term;
  • Encourage different generations to start the conversation on succession;
  • Explain what your accounts are telling you about the future of the business;
  • Provide a range of ideas of how you could add value to your business.

The speakers will be using real-life case studies and there will be plenty of opportunities for questions and networking.

Speakers at the event include:
1. Joel Woolf, partner at Wright Hassall. Joel is a farmers’ son from Suffolk who advises estates and farmers on strategic business planning,


2. Mark Dickin, a partner at Ellacotts accounts, who specialises in succession planning and helping clients create a plan to pass the business and their interests in land to the next generation 

3. Phil Bicknell, the Market Intelligence Team Director at the Agricultural and Horticultural Development Board.

In order to gain the most from this event we suggest that more than one generation of your family might like to attend.

The event is being supported by Wright Hassall and lunch is sponsored by the Agricultural and Horticultural Development Board
