A WORKSHOP designed to help Bundaberg fruit and vegetable growers handle difficult conversation will be held next month.

Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers is running the free two-day course called Negotiations and Influencing next month at Fairymead House, North Bundaberg.

The workshop has been created for the horticulture industry to help growers communicate and feel more confident in influencing conversations for a better outcome.

The workshop is an initiative of the VegNET and VegPRO projects funded by peak industry body Hort Innovation with vegetable grower levies and Australian Government funding.

It has already been rolled out in other peak vegetable-growing regions, and with positive results.

"This course gave me improved ability to understand different negotiation positions,” a former participant said.

The workshop will be held on March 14-15 at 9am.

RSVP required online at or contact BFVG on 4153 3007.
