I’m a facilitator and I’m also a farmer. I’m based in Narromine in central New South Wales, where I operate a farming enterprise with my wife, Amanda. I love farming and have been doing it for 25 years. Amanda and I have raised our three daughters on the farm.
I have first-hand experience of successful succession. My parents were approaching 60 years of age when they developed the succession plan for our family farm between three siblings.
As a facilitator, I’ve worked across all levels of government, in the corporate sector and small business. To be able to work with families on succession, in 2013 I launched Cultivate Advisory. I love helping people achieve mutually successful outcomes.

James’ style and process resulted in clarity for family members and myself to successfully move to owned and agreed outcomes.
James was pivotal in helping my family with our succession planning. The combination of his rural background and his business training meant James understood exactly the issues involved and how to find a way forward.
James is a breath of fresh air in the succession space. I recommend his services to anyone looking to successfully transfer the family business from one generation to the next.
