Family business advisor

As a family business advisor Anita Brightley-Hodges is passionate about working with family businesses, and as an advisor to family-run companies she strives to help them overcome the issues they face such as succession planning, the struggles of balancing family and business, and opening the channels of communication.

What keeps you awake at night?

What DOESN’T is possibly closer to the mark, but Family Business Place are here to help. Through our conversations with family businesses, of the many issues cited, the most common are: sibling rivalry; competence of the Board; exit plans; children and cousins in the business; ‘meddling dad’; survival in the market place; inheritance tax; blood line; succession; shareholders’ rights; and in-laws. We can help with all of them.

The relationships we have with the family businesses we work with are discreet, empathetic and confidential. Yes, it takes time and effort on behalf of all parties, but it is vital to create an honest, open and respectful environment; one that supports and encourages everyone to speak their mind.

All family members, regardless of role or seniority, must feel empowered to raise issues close to their heart and discuss any frustrations they may have.
