You’re a top executive of a multimillion dollar operation, in the top 1% of farms and ranches in North America, and you produce millions of dollars of agricultural products every year.
You're tasked with managing the vast strategic complexities of running a top-tier enterprise, while also having to deal with daily issues like input prices, markets, the weather and pests.
On top of that, your large operation is likely still a family-run business. So you also have to manage working with the same people you call your parents, your spouse, your siblings, your children and your extended family.
As a leader of your operation, you’ve got an awful lot to deal with – but few, if any, peers to talk to about it. You really know what it means when they say, “It’s lonely at the top.”
That’s why Farm Journal Media created TPEN: Top Producer Executive Network™.
Welcome to the network created just for you.
TPEN is an association of executive peer advisory groups, consisting of top producing farmers and ranchers – just like you – from non-competing operations across the continent.
These are leaders who know exactly what you’re going through – because they’re going through it too.
YOUR OWN PERSONAL BRAIN TRUST
In TPEN groups, peers come together several times a year, facilitated by an experienced agriculture professional, to help each other maximize their success – in their operations, their families and their lives.
Your TPEN group is your personal brain trust. Here is where you’ll meet with like-minded farmers and ranchers who operate at your level, and who, like you, continually seek to raise their game.
Within this group of experienced leaders you’ll be able to tap into a shared wealth of experience, knowledge and fresh perspectives you won’t find anywhere else.
Here is the place to collaborate and trade wisdom about all aspects of running an operation, including:
- Business strategy
- Weather & pests
- Long term strategy
- Succession planning
STRATEGIC AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT
Your peers will give you advice and encouragement – and hold you accountable – to help you fulfill your highest success potential. And you’ll have the satisfaction of doing the same for your fellow group members.
It’s a confidential environment where you can feel completely safe to share anything and everything about what you’re going through – among peers who truly care about you.
ADDITIONAL TPEN BENEFITS
As a TPEN member, you’ll gain ongoing connection to your peers, both in your group, and within our network of top producers across North America, including at our annual Signature Event – affording you year-round strategic support. You'll also have access to a trove of helpful online resources, researched and published by Farm Journal Media just for TPEN Members.
But what you may appreciate the most is the lifelong friendships you'll gain as part of a community of folks who truly get you – with bonds forged from deep collaboration and shared experiences.
