Event description

Description

Join us in York for our inaugural Yorkshire family business conference which will not only bring the family business together, it provides a great opportunity to discuss some of the unique challenges facing family firms and to hear insights from other family business people and their advisers who have already dealt with some of these challenges too.

As well as some great speakers providing great insights there are a selection of workshops, delegates will have free access to the Family Business Show that is taking place in the gorund floor of the conference venue throughout the day where they can sample some great British family business products and meet other suppliers and there is plenty of time for networking too.

Great speakers. Great insights. Great value.

We look forward to welcoming you to York in May 2019.

Innovation is at the heart of Harrison Spinks, and it is the continuous investment in technology which has allowed the family firm to become the most vertically integrated bed manufacturer in the world. Not only do they manufacture patented pocket springs, they also have a dedicated team of engineers who design and build the machinery on-site in Leeds which produces their award-winning springs.

Harrison Spinks has also invested in a number of state-of-the-art weaving looms and a dedicated in-house laboratory ensures the quality of all their components and products. This continuous investment in technology was recognised by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 2013 and in 2018 when they were awarded with The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, in Innovation (2013 & 2018), Sustainable Development (2013) and International Trade (2018). Simon will share the story behind the award-winning family firm that is now entering the fifth generation.
