Improve the Profitability and Performance of your Agribusiness
through ABDI’s Agri-Business Management Programs.


ABDI specialise in business development and mentoring for agribusinesses. If you are looking to expand or optimise your
agribusiness, or maybe just refine a few things, ABDI’s Agri-Business Management Programs can help through this process.

ABDI’s programs focus on the “business” and “people” side of your agribusiness. Production is where you are a specialist – ABDI will help
you improve the foundational business elements that support this – based around the ABDI 12 Pillars of Business Best Practice.

We also focus on, what we call, “internal profitability”. This is about thinking differently, looking more closely at your business efficiency
and realising you can make as much money, if not more, from your enterprise, by running a smarter and better operation.

How the ABDI programs work

  • Getting you off the tractor, out of the car, and into a supportive setting – where you can think strategically, to work ON the business, not IN the business
  • Group programs – our experience is that putting a group of like-minded and motivated agri-business people in a room together yields amazing results through shared learning
  • Ongoing mentoring — It’s easy to learn the principles of business best practice, but the challenge is in the application and actually making a change. Our mentoring helps in the change and transition process from where you are now … to where you want to be
  • Focussing on the people in the agri-business, because that’s where the change needs to come from.
  • Taking a more holistic approach to the business redesign and change process—based on the ABDI 12 Pillars of Business Best Practice.
  • This formula is built from decades of working with leading agribusinesses, and seeing what works (and what doesn’t).



Beef Business Management Program

Is your beef business providing you with the financial return, time off and general satisfaction that you thought it would?

Are you looking to grow your enterprise – or maybe just to fine-tune a few things? Or do you have lingering issues around succession, or are looking to move into higher value, more profitable markets? 

The Beef Business Management Program has been developed to work with beef enterprises, to take them to the ‘next level’ of business thinking, skills and profitability. The focus is on mentoring beef enterprises through a business transformation process – to make sure they accurately identify what needs to change in their business, and to work together to ensure that change happens.

Who should attend ABDI’s programs – and why?

Agribusinesses – farmers and service providers – are the essence of supplying the high quality food we eat and the goods we use in our everyday lives. And it is the firm belief of Gordon Stone and the ABDI team that it’s only fair they GET THE BEST POSSIBLE FINANCIAL RETURN on effort expended. That’s where we come in. ABDI’s focus is on working with the top, forward thinking agribusiness operators to achieve those goals.

ABDI’s programs cover all agribusiness sectors – beef, horticulture, grains, cotton, dairy, new crops etc – and across the supply chain from farmers, to service providers, to advisers. Our job is to work with those who are absolutely focussed on building highly profitable, client focussed and self-managing businesses – that meet their own needs, while meeting those of their clients / customers.



“I found the ‘Taking a Leap’ Mastermind program helped me become crystal clear on where to head the business.  After being involved in the personal work we had to do as part of the program, it became very apparent that the direction of the business was too diverse – as a result of working it through, I am now very clear about EXACTLY what the business will do for its clients, exactly where the business is headed and I now have very clear goals and a pathway to get there.  This is a vastly different position from when I started the program.”  

Chris Temsen – Regional Manager, Peracto


Can ABDI help you?

Ask yourself these 3 questions:

  1. Is my agri-business helping me achieve what I set out to?
  2. Are there aspects of my business that I am not happy with, and is it providing more hassles than opportunities?
  3. Is financial freedom, or the freedom to do what I want with my personal life, realistic in the near future?

If these questions get to you because you know your business is not everything you want it to be, then talk to us. ABDI genuinely believe that by taking things back to first principles and making some simple changes that have seen proven success in leading agribusinesses, your business can be everything you want it to be.

More money … more free time … with less hassles. That’s our aim for your agribusiness.
