Agribusiness & Talking Shop
The Agribusiness Group is built around regular Talking Shop sessions organized by Jim Turnbull, the MD of Belmont Management Consultants. The Talking Shop meets on the last Friday of the month in the Shepherd's Crook, Crowell, Oxon. No need to book – just turn up at 12.30.
The Talking Shop meets to share tales of travel, successful projects and disasters, topical issues, IT tips, business opportunities and more. Its objectives are to improve networking and to overcome a major problem for those not working in a large organization – the need for regular contact with like-minded consultants.
The Group's aim is to build on these monthly Talking Shop meetings,and to attract new members who are interested in the commercial aspects of development. It is hoped that real business opportunities will emerge to the mutual benefit of those who attend.
