Thinking outside the box: Jack Cocks & Joanne Stevenson on Resilience in the farming business

Jack Cocks joins us to discuss what resilience is, and what farm businesses and farming families can do to prepare for the future even though they can’t change it.

Jack Cocks lives and farms on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, and Joanne Stevenson is a Principal Consultant at Resilient Organisations while farming in North Canterbury. In 2013 Jack experienced an unforeseen and life-changing medical event, which gave him and his family some marked insight to preparing a business to deal with change, both large and small.

They discuss what resilience is, and what farm businesses and farming families can do to prepare for the future even though they can’t change it.
