Employee Exchange Program

George Lane (pictured above with David Heinjus from Rural Directions) from Brown & Co (UK) arrived in the Mid North for a four-week exchange at the beginning of October. While in South Australia, George worked with Rural Directions employees and visited SA's cropping and grazing regions.

The exchange program between Rural Directions and UK-based consultancy Brown & Co will give our team members an international insight into better managing risks.

The objective of this program was for George to undertake a project to report on leasing and sharefarming business models that could be used in South Australian cropping and grazing regions to better manage seasonal risks.

Whilst here, George also learnt about Rural Directions business and investigated transferable practices that could be beneficial to Brown & Co back in the UK.

In June/July 2019, Brown & Co will reciprocate by hosting a Rural Directions consultant for a similar four-week period.
