The DIRTT Project LIVE! is a hands-on intensive workshop taught by experts in farm succession planning.

 

During The DIRTT Project LIVE! you will:

 

  • Use the topics and tools included in The DIRTT Project to jump-start the succession planning process for your operation whether you are just beginning or need to get on track.

  • Build the foundation of your comprehensive succession plan.

  • Set goals for both the transitioning owners and the operation.

  • Create a plan to ensure that your heirs and successors are ready to lead and work effectively together.

  • Learn how to address family disharmony or handle communication with successors who do not get along.

  • Create a Succession Communication Plan to ensure your family stays informed and engaged.

  • Learn how to choose your professional team and hold them accountable for the work they will be doing for you.

  • Have access to professionals with expertise in farm succession planning.

  • Network with and learn from other farmers in transition.

At the end of the 3-day workshop, you will have completed the foundations of your succession plan and have an action plan to execute when you get back to your farm.

“Rena’s no nonsense, you’re doing great approach is commendable.  Transition and Succession along with everyday operational tasks seem overwhelming.  The DIRTT Project keeps us on track at solving the hard questions, one step at a time.  Rena understands the farming operation and realizes that everything takes time to sort out and work through.  Her no pressure approach is what keeps us persevering.  Rena and The DIRTT Project have helped us to always look at the bigger picture.  “Why are we planning for transition and succession”?  The DIRTT Project has helped us to utilize our time to answer the tough questions regarding transition and retirement.  Rena and The DIRTT Project turn transition and succession planning from a feared, unspoken subject, into an exciting opportunity.  Suddenly, answering the tough questions have become a new vision for the farm.”
