Conducted by Rebecca Moriarty and Jan Paul van Moort from ACIL Allen Consulting, this webinar engaged cross-industry representatives, sharing an overview of the latest Nursery Industry Statistics 2018-19 report, its key findings and how this data has been used to inform the tool.

The webinar explains how to navigate the tool, covering the basics on how to get started, through to how to input and interpret business data.

Rebecca and JP also shared insights into how they are working to further refine future editions of the tool as they collect more data in the future.

The financial benchmarking tool allows you to compare the performance of your business against industry averages, with the aim to boost productivity and profitability of your businesses. The tool is free for levy payers and available for download.

Growers are invited to utilise this resource which allows them to see key industry trends and statistics, and assess core aspects of the business, such as turnover, sales by product type and market, wages and input costs, sentiment and expectations, against those operating in similar segments across the industry.
