Isobel Knight is a succession planning specialist. The founder and director of Australia’s leading Succession Planning Business, Proagtive, she also runs a cattle grazing enterprise in northern NSW with her husband. Isobel is a trained counsellor and mediator and has degrees in business law and psychology.

First-hand experience of the challenges of planning for the future was the catalyst for Isobel’s interest in farm succession planning. She believes every family farm business needs a plan and works with farming families to navigate their way through the complexities of the succession planning process.

With decades of experience, Isobel offers a unique and effective service to farming families incorporating an online platform of information, resources and templates to support them through the succession planning process.

Isobel is determined that farming families remain the stewards of our agricultural land and believes the key to this is through a smoother, more effective transition to the next generation. The result being more young people returning to the family farm, helping to sustain and create stronger, more vibrant rural communities.
