Outstanding Business of the Month: Belgenny Farm
Lyndal Bruce is passionate about working at Belgenny Farm and all that it offers. Almost two centuries old, it is a place where historical and modern day agricultural practises and expertise come together to provide a family attraction that promises to entertain and educate.
This historic rural property also provides a serene setting for corporate events, incentive programs, product launches, gala events and weddings.
Belgenny Farm offers HSC students a wonderful opportunity to undertake workplacement in Tourism. Students experience real “hands on” event management training. Not only do they answer phones, enter data, prepare and distribute mailouts, handle bookings, receive payments and prepare receipts, they get to work on the actual event. This is a fantastic situation and one that is greatly appreciated by the students.
Lyndal enjoys hosting the students. She says “They are of an exceptional standard. They are hard workers, competent and motivated. They’re shown something once and they get on with the job. We really appreciate the assistance they provide.”
Lyndal also has a message for other Macarthur Businesses who don’t offer students work placement. “Come on board. You’ll feel better knowing you’ve assisted young people with career choices. The students often write letters of thanks. It’s rewarding knowing you’ve helped mould our future generation.”
As this month’s winner, Belgenny Farm will receive profiling in the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on www.mwlp.com.au and thanks to Event Cinemas Campbelltown, Gold Class movie tickets.
