The Great British Family Business 2017

Great speakers. Great insights. Great value.

A safe place to learn and plenty of time for questions and networking too!

We work hard to create innovative events to help family business owners deal with the challenges they face, providing opportunities to hear from others who have dealt with similar challenges and who are prepared to share their stories for the benefit of others.

Family business members often feel 'they are alone' and we are always delighted when delegates tell us they have gained an insight into addressing something that until then they felt they were the only ones facing. The Great British Family Business is a must in the family business calendar and provides numerous opportunities for family firms to learn, share and feel part of a vibrant community that is at the very heart of the British economy too.

Family Business United has been championing the cause for the family business sector for many years and this event really does bring the family business community together. As delegates at the event in 2016 said:

"You have created an amazing force for good in terms of Family Businesses"

"Inspirational speakers combined with great organisation and super time-keeping made this event one of the best conferences I have been to for many years. Great content, balance and pitch and a real credit to the endeavours of the FBU team."

"The phrase 'networking to learn' was never truer than the conference yesterday -- I really enjoyed it and met some great people, most of whom were very humble but coupled with both focus and tenacity. Terrific event all round!"

"Congratulations on another amazing event today - You created such a special atmosphere and there was a lot of really positive feedback around the room."

We look forward to welcoming you to the event in March 2017.
