Brendon Smart from the Smart Group, runs a 5,000ha property in Keith South Australia.  Brendon will provide insight into ‘successfully working with the next generation’, which the Smart Group have been actively working on for the last 20 years.  This has been achieved by firstly deciding to change the way the business managed people, introducing a quality management program and providing more responsibility and autonomy to staff.  The Smart Group also established a family board, with a mix of independent directors and family members.  The board is similar to that of any major public company with reporting requirements and the like in place.  Brendon believes that no family business is sustainable unless you have a sustainable family.  You can read more on the Smart Group here or click here to register your spot at the ProNet National Conference.
