Katie Barker talks to two members of the evaluation committee for the Coutts Prize for Family Business about how family companies can stand out in the post-recession world and why entrepreneurialism is always important in business families

According to Andrew Wates, third-generation former chairman of Wates Family Holdings, "No market stays the same forever, markets change and you have to be able to change with them." As a member of the evaluation committee for the Coutts Prize for Family Business this is something that he is bearing in mind as the judging process gets under way.

"I think you will find, come the end of the recession, that family businesses prospered rather better than many public companies," says Roger Pedder, former head of C&J Clark Ltd (Clarks shoes) and head of the evaluation committee of the Coutts Prize for Family Business.

When the Wilson brothers picked up the Coutts Prize for Family Business in June, there was naturally much jubilation and pride at having their efforts rewarded. But as camera flashlights lit up the room and champagne bottles were uncorked, it could not have been further away from the day, 37 years earlier, when the Wilsons took over Nelsons following the tragic plane crash which killed the last remaining descendants of the company's founding family.
