Setting the Family Business Agenda

By Nicholas Moody

Family Business United (FBU), a leading online magazine and resource centre for family firms in the UK, is seeking to determine the Family Business Agenda.

The London-based organisation with family business members throughout the UK is now looking for family firms across the UK to share their thoughts on the specific challenges facing family firms via an online survey.

The innovative organisation for family firms has launched a survey to enable family firms to identify the key challenges they face, their agenda, and this will then be used by the team at FBU to develop the appropriate resources to help tackle these challenges.”

FBU is an independent resource centre that sources the best content from contributors around the globe – organisations such as INSEAD, IMD and STEP as well as leading family business consultants, experts and professionals. This research will seek to match resources and source new content to address the issues that come to the fore.

Paul Andrews, founder and managing director of FBU, said: "Bringing the best resources together under one roof helps families in business to deal with the unique challenges they face, from employing family members to succession planning, governance and wealth preservation."

The Family Business Agenda is available for completion here and is the latest in a series of leading events from the team at FBU.

As Andrews explains: "2015 gets off to a fast start with a flagship national conference in March, The Great British Family Business, with speakers from family firms sharing their insights and perspectives with the likes of Derrick Potter (Potter Logistics) and Midlands family business owners Adrian Maxwell (Fracino), Christopher Nieper (David Nieper) and Robin Skailes (Cropwell Bishop Creamery) taking to the stage."

"This is followed by The Family Business Road Trip where the FBU team visit 50 family firms over a five week period and seek to put the family business sector on the map before the Family Business of the Year Awards where exemplary family firms are crowned in sector and regional categories with an overall supreme champion,” he adds.

“Help us to set the agenda and address the challenges facing family firms for the next generation,” concludes Andrews.
