Family Business Place Growth Clubs

A pioneering new concept for the leaders of Britain’s most ambitious family-owned businesses. Small hubs around the UK of local family business leaders who meet regularly to support and develop each other’s plans for growth and success. A nationwide network of small, local hubs of family business leaders who meet four times a year to spend time working ON their business. An invaluable external board for growing businesses who benefit from the experience, wisdom and connections of other entrepreneurs around the table.

As well as the usual operational challenges of running and growing a business, family-owned companies have to grapple with the added challenges of family dynamics, succession issues, governance and the next generation. Nowhere else can they spend time with fellow family business owners who truly understand the tricky complexities that come with mixing family and business.
