The Family Business Practice, a unique Midlands-based business development and networking organisation for family run businesses and businesses that work alongside and support family businesses, has launched in Malvern.
The Family Business Practice now has established groups in Malvern, Kidderminster, Aldridge, Solihull & Wolverhampton.
The Family Business Practice is the brainchild of Peter Roper, the Family Business Man. He wanted to build a network of owner-managed and family businesses who understand that family businesses are different. In doing so, he wanted to help some of the three million family businesses in the UK to feel more valued and be more celebrated than they sometimes are.
The Practice is two years old, has over 80 members ranging from husband-and-wife consultancies to businesses employing over 200 people. The one thing they all have in common is that they are all family businesses or businesses that serve family business and they think, act and do differently to their corporate equivalents. It’s also growing rapidly, thanks to both word of mouth of happy members but also our active marketing strategy.
Robert Elliot, Sales Manager at Hogarths Hotel Solihull and Hogarths Stone Manor hotels said: “These events have been fantastic, great speakers, great conversation, great 1-2-1’s, and above all excellent venues and delicious food. I would recommend the meetings, and naturally, the venues.”
The Family Business Practice meetings are at the heart of The Family Business Practice. They are when Practice members get together to catch up, share experiences, build relationships and do business.
There are currently 10 Family Business Practice meetings each year per region, plus two exclusive Premium Member-only meetings. To Find out more about member benefits here
