VegPRO is coordinating a free two-day workshop to help growers improve their negotiations and influencing skills in all facets of their business.

VegPRO is a strategic levy investment project under the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund that is delivering targeted, tailored training for Australian vegetable growers. In this course, industry members who deal with people on a day-to-day basis (whether it be with customers, staff, transport and logistics companies or anyone else) can learn a wide range of useful skills, including:

  • increased confidence and effective communication;
  • managing emotional and difficult conversations; and
  • identifying other people’s tactics and having a strategy for responses.

Date: 19–20 February 2018
South Australian Produce Markets, Burma Road, Pooraka, SA 5095
