Congratulations Belgenny Farm on winning this month’s prestigious MWLP’s Business of the Month Award.
Belgenny Farm is located in historic Camden Park Estate, famous home of agricultural pioneers Elizabeth and John Macarthur. It is a unique setting for their variety of functions including weddings, corporate functions, school formals, Christmas parties, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Bridal Expos, school visits, photo shoots and TV commercials.
They offer Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Tourism as part of their Higher School Certificate, exciting week-long work placements at the working farm.
Students experience real ‘hands on’ event management training. Not only do they answer phones, take bookings, update databases, receive payments and prepare receipts, they get to work on the actual event. From set up, to taking money at the gate, keeping stall holders happy, to securing the site at the end of the day.
Office Manager, Lyndal Bruce (on right in photo) says “The students love their placements at Belgenny Farm. Our Chairman Dr. Cameron Archer is passionate about our youth and that’s why we have continually taken students since 2001. I would encourage other businesses to become part of the MWLP program. It is rewarding not only for us but definitely for the students.”
As this month’s outstanding winner, Belgenny Farm will receive profiling in the Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly editions of the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on www.mwlp.com.au and thanks to United Cinemas Narellan, Grand Seating movie tickets.
