Description

The Greater Manchester Family Business Association and Family Business United have joined forces to bring you the region's first Family Business Day; a celebration of the diversity, strength and contribution that family businesses make to the Greater Manchester economy and beyond.

The Event Speakers

Rebecca Jeffery from Fi & Becs and star on BBC One's The Apprentice 2016

Becs Jeffery set up her own successful marketing and design agency with her sister Fi in 2013. Starting their business over a pot of tea and two laptops with no funding or financial loans just over three years ago, the two sisters have grown Fi & Becs Design & Marketing into a profitable business which now works with over 180 clients across the UK, Germany, China, Ireland, Canada and the USA.

With an impressive portfolio of clients that includes the retail giants Matalan, Fi & Becs pride themselves on providing friendly, flexible and creative services to businesses both big and small; including many start-ups and family run companies.

In 2016 Becs successfully managed to become a candidate on The Apprentice on BBC One and survived six weeks before being fired in a comedy soap/soup mix-up and declaring that she “wasn’t enough of a tw*t” to win.

Staying true to their flexible, honest and friendly approach, the sisters firmly believe that approachability has been key to their success and their client portfolio has grown so rapidly due to honesty, friendliness and non-salesy behaviour!
