The Limestone Coast Women in Ag Network will host, best-selling author, financial educator and serial entrepreneur Melissa Browne for two Financial Awareness events for women this month.
The first event, a networking evening in Mount Gambier on June 15 will be a Masterclass on the Psychology of Pricing.
Ms Browne will discuss both the theory and practical of pricing and participants will walk away with the tools they need to make decisions around pricing in their business as well as work on their existing pricing.
She will then head to Bordertown on June 16, running a workshop on Financial Resilience vs Financial Wellness.
The workshop will examine the concepts of Financial Awareness – your money story, whether you think money is good, bad or okay, your money type, gaining an understanding as to who you are financially and the practical steps you can take to make change.
Ms Browne will also host a panel discussing career paths in ag, providing guidance and experience from local women.
MacKillop Group chief executive Meg Bell said the group was excited to host such an influential speaker in the region.
“Being able to bring Mel to the region to share her message with women in ag is exactly why the Limestone Coast Women in Ag Network has been established,” she said.
“We hope that Mel will empower women in our region to build financial skills and awareness, helping them to become more prepared for and resilient to the impacts of drought.”
Ms Bell said the MacKillop Farm Management Group was coordinating the network and was excited to work with DairySA, Lucerne Australia, the Grassland Society of Southern Australia, Coorong Tatiara Local Action Plan, Women in Business and Regional Development, WoTL (Women Together Learning) and the Limestone Coast Landscape Board.
