Family Business United is all about celebrating the contribution of family businesses across the UK - any sector and any size. We champion their contribution in terms of jobs provided, income generated and wealth created, not to mention the impact that they have on communities the length and breadth of the country.
We share their news stories on our award winning magazine, together with interviews, insights, features, research and pieces to help them address the unique issues that arise from family ownership such as succession planning, next generation engagement and a whole lot more besides.
We also host innovative events such as our annual Family Business Road Trip (six weeks visiting dozens of family firms in a sponsored car), host The Great British Family Business Conference, The Family Business of the Year Awards and organise campaigns such as National Family Business Day that takes place annually on September 23.
Having been brought up in a family business, it seems appropriate that I have followed a journey through accountancy and business development to create an award winning magazine and resource centre that celebrates the role of family firms today.
With over 6 million family firms in Britain generating over 25% of UK GDP and employing more than 12 million people, I love to share their news and help them achieve their goals.
Be authentic. Be real and ensure you love what you do. It makes works so much more fulfilling when you have a passion and a purpose. We have created a community for the family business sector and it is a pleasure to do what we do each and every day.
Take pride. Have a purpose. Be passionate. Have fun!
