Bringing the family business community together

Join Us For The Best Of British

21st January 2016 Paul Andrews

Just days to go until our flagship national conference and a host of great speakers set to inspire, share and provide their own personal insights into the challenges facing family firms today.

Join us in London for our national conference and be inspired.  The 2016 Great British Family Business conference will be taking place at The British Library Conference Centre, within walking distance of Kings Cross and Euston stations, bringing together a wealth of family business knowledge and expertise in what is sure to be a family business masterclass.

Sessions are planned to cover topics such as Produced in Britain by Family Firms, Governance and the Family Business, Protecting the Name Above the Door, Communicating Effectively Between The Generations and personal insights from numerous family business owners who not only talk the talk but have demonstrated throught their actions how they have 'walked the walk' too.

As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United, the organisers of this event explains, "We are delighted to be running GBFB2016 in the heart of London and to have the support of some great family businesses.  Nothing resonates with family business owners better than hearing first hand accounts of the challenges that others have had to address, the 'light-bulb moment' when they realise that they are not alone in facing some of the challenges that running a family business creates, and it never ceases to amaze me how open and honest the speakers are when sharing these insights."

"We look forward to welcoming the family business community to London in March for what is billed as The Great British Family Business and is sure to be a masterclass in how to make the most of family values in the branding, development, governance and sustainability of the family firm."

Speakers include:

John Stevenson, MP, Carlisle and Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Family Business

Sarah Dunning, Chief Executive, Westmorland Limited

Sarah Copas, Commercial Director, Copas Turkeys 

Cleeves Palmer, Director, Palmers Brewery

Tamara Roberts, CEO, Ridgeview Winery Estate

John Shepherd, Managing Director, Partridges of Sloane Square

Jane Robertson, Director, Portakabin

Jane Knapp, Director, Phillips Brothers

There is a great and diverse selection of speakers so there will be something for everyone and plenty of time to network with the other delegates over lunch and during the coffee breaks. 

We hope that the line-up of speakers is of interest to you and you are able to join us at The British Library in March. Book here
