Prof Venter of the School of Management Sciences and Acting Director of the Nelson Mandela University Family Business Unit, was one of eight speakers who participated in the AGRI2B Summit 2020 that was held on 6 October 2020. 

The theme of this year’s Summit was Built for Sustainability. Prof Venter’s presentation was on "The role and the importance of women and spouses in building sustainable Agri businesses". Women in family businesses have various roles that they fulfil and experience unique challenges as supporting family members, wives, daughters, grandmothers, businesswomen and entrepreneurs. Prof Venter made several recommendations on how to improve women’s work-life balance and how women can be recognised as a valuable resource to ensure the sustainability and growth of Agri (family) businesses.
