Inside Outside Management
"Farmers are a hard group to teach but this group learning experience facilitates change well. Everyone gets more from the course than they bargained for. It is evident throughout the course that Holistic Management can benefit everyone from the country to the CBD."
Sam Bonello, Bangalow, NSW
"This would have to be one of the best courses I have done. My only regret would be that I didn't do it sooner. Should have done it with my whole family but unfortunately that was not practical. Looking forward to putting this learning into practice."
Don Schulton, Bangalow, NSW
"The Holistic Management course delivered by Inside Outside Management under the TAFE umbrella has far exceeded our expectations! We have learned an enormous amount about what a healthy environment is, what a productive pasture looks like, and how to achieve them. This carries over to include a better understanding of animal health and nutrition achieved with little or no chemical interventions.
The fundamental concepts of Holistic Management are powerful and persuasive, and the knowledge and tools taught in the course allow a keen novice and seasoned professional alike to get started straight away. We have already begun the process of mending past (inadvertent) sins and omissions, and can see the beneficial impact in only a few short months.
We now have a wonderful decision-making tool to allow us to resolve a problem or test an idea, or ideas, taking all of the key factors: the environment; the cost and funding sources; the impact; and our long term "life goals", into account.
The current and last segment of the course, Financial Planning, will allow us to keep within known and viable financial parameters.
In summary, we are delighted to be doing the course, and excited about the new knowledge and tools we have gained.
PS We are just about to go away for three weeks, and the pasture assessment tools we have acquired allowed us to work out how to deploy the cattle so that we can be sure that they will have sufficient nutrition while we are gone."
Julie Brady and Felicity Carter, Forster, NSW
"Certainly the best course I have attended. Totally new ideas passionately promoted by the facilitators, lots of reinforcement. Gives me great hope and motivation for the future!"

"I would encourage other Graziers to have a look at attending one of these workshops to equip themselves with the information revealed to assist them in making future grazing management decisions / plans."
James T. Vote, Warwick, QLD
"Well presented and useful information easily adaptable to our business. Will help with our decision-making to benefit all aspects of our lives."
Wayne McNalty, Glenmorgan, QLD
"I did have doubts about doing the course but as we worked through it, it was a big wake-up call about ourselves and the environment."
Corrina Kirkwood, Glenmorgan, QLD
"The Holistic Management course with Inside Outside Management at Bega was a great experience - bonding exercises formed the group into a close knot trusting group of people who were comfortable to share their experiences. The HM method of farm planning is a wonderful concept which should be more widely promoted.'"
Jenny Baker, Bega, NSW
"An enlightening, inspiring and challenging course.'"
