SAOS Training for farmer directors, co-op managers and staff in 2017

The expectations and demands of co-op directors, managers and staff are constantly increasing, as is the continued need to improve skills and knowledge through effective training. Developing personal capability is one of the most effective ways to improve a co-op’s performance. SAOS’ winter training programme offers a great opportunity to advance the skills and knowledge of farmer directors, co-op managers and wider co-op staff.

Last winter’s training events were a huge success with over 60 co-op directors, managers and staff attending the various events. We appreciate that accessing bespoke training can be a problem for co-op businesses, so please take advantage of the various training opportunities provided.
Getting a group of co-op directors and managers together provides great networking opportunities, it is always interesting to hear how other co-ops tackle similar issues. No matter your experience you will always learn something which can be applied back to your own co-op.

The following three workshops are planned, click on the links for further details:

1. Effective Co-op Governance – Wed 18th January 2017
