The Financial Roundtable Program, designed by KTC, enrolls small groups of farmers of the same ilk into a collaborative, expert-led, financially focused business program. Each meeting leaves participants and their businesses further supported with practical tools they can immediately implement, new ideas on achieving financial decision making clarity through opportunity assessment protocols, and a subject matter expert workshop on a topic of the group's choice. This roundtable is an opportunity for farm business owners to gain commiserators, collaborators, and even business partners for their future success. This roundtable is structured to open channels of communication and facilitate candidness among participants. Every roundtable participant benefits from the KTC facilitator(s) who have farm and business ownership experience and a benchmarking/metric process to stimulate constructive competition and conversations. Sharing everything in a structured format enables our producers and local supply chains to grow faster and stronger, and helps a region’s organizational managers build and grow their operational and financial acumen.

Learning objectives:
-Use farmer case studies to explore how benchmarking key ratios across businesses evokes an engaging financial conversation and problem solving
-Provide insight to help any business owner get better at what they're doing, whether in good times or bad
-Understand the purpose and benefits of a full-scale farmer roundtable
