Effectively navigating the complexities of succession planning within farming families requires a specialised approach, particularly when intertwining the threads of work and home.
Carrick Aland’s Succession Specialist, Wayne Turner, extends a helping hand to Queensland farming families in Meandarra and Jandowae with expert guidance through a series of free succession planning workshops scheduled in February.
With over 35 years of experience as a local succession planning specialist with Carrick Aland, Wayne and his team specialise in managing the intricate process of intergenerational transitions in rural family businesses and assets.
The workshops, run from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM, present a unique opportunity for participants to secure their financial futures and embark on a journey toward successful succession planning:
Leveraging his extensive experience, Wayne delves into the unique challenges faced by intergenerational rural business owners. Each workshop aims to empower participants with insights into applying key succession planning principles to their family’s situation, focusing on financial security for those exiting farming enterprises and continuing family members alike.
“Our region mirrors the challenges encountered by farming regions across Australia,” says Wayne.
“To ensure the longevity and prosperity of our agricultural businesses, meticulous management and forward-thinking strategies are imperative.”
“Succession planning, when approached well in advance, stands as a means to achieve financial security for both those transitioning out and those continuing.”
Wayne’s approach goes beyond financial security, addressing the crucial aspect of off-farm sibling equity. This ensures that the distribution of assets is conducted with transparency and fairness. The workshops are designed to offer insights into managing relationships along the succession journey, acknowledging the harmonious balance that often accompanies such transitions.
Wayne also emphasises the importance of developing multigenerational capabilities within family enterprises. By considering the future needs of each generation, viable financial and business structures can be established to ensure sustainability and prosperity for years to come.
The significance of having a local succession expert cannot be understated.
Wayne not only serves as a guide through the complexities of succession planning but also as a reliable local resource for families seeking hands-on assistance or a nearby sounding board. His local expertise ensures that regional-specific insights, an awareness of local issues, and immediate support are readily available.
