Esperance information seminar on 'argibanking'

Bankwest will hold its first ‘agribanking’ information seminar in Esperance this March and are urging local farmers and members of the wider community to attend.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear a range of speakers provide insight on topics relevant to today's regional lifestyle and industry. 

The seminar, entitled ‘Navigating your business: Managing your assets, finances and security’ will take place in Esperance on March 1. 

Bankwest WA Business Banking general manager Richard Bator said the day was an opportunity to ‘share expertise’ and knowledge of the relationship between banking and agriculture. 

“Bankwest was founded as an agricultural bank and we’ve been supporting WA’s farmers for over 120 years,” he said.

“In today’s fast changing world, rural and regional businesses need to be able to evolve and adapt in order to be sustainable and successful. 

“In fact, many regional farming communities in WA face significant barriers to growth which can prevent them from realising their true potential.”

Bankwest senior relationship manager Chris Wilson said it was great to have the seminar in town.

“It will help share vital knowledge and expertise with local businesses and the Esperance community,” he said.
