Anne-Marie is passionate about reducing the burden of office work.  Anne-Marie has experience of working with different personalities through change and first-hand knowledge of the benefits of office systems development to a farming business.Combining her corporate background with her farming knowledge, Anne-Marie will work with you to develop office systems which reduce the burden of paperwork and help you grow confidence in the business side of your farming operation.

Anne-Marie believes with sound structure in our businesses, we can improve accuracy, reduce stress and most importantly, free up time to do more enjoyable things.

Anne-Marie and Duncan are also finalists in the Primary Industries Good Employer Awards, in the safe and healthy work environments category.  This is fantastic news and we are a looking forward to the outcome of the awards dinner at Parliament on 27 November.
