Running a family business can be all consuming and The Family Business Network Ltd was created to help.
We are the pivot point for family businesses looking for a safe environment to learn from each other, find relevant news, relevant events and access innovative additional support when needed. Founded by Sue Howorth in 2014 the network originally started via support from the Cumbria Growth Hub. The network has since developed and as of June 2016 the network became it’s own company so Sue could continue her role as Family Business Ambassador and be the voice for family businesses across the region. Through Sue’s award winning work in Cumbria . The Family Business Network has now evolved to include Lancashire , Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and surrounding areas. We love signposting family businesses to relevant assistance, advice, or investment channels but equally thrive on our family business orientated events. Our Insight days, workshops and flagship Family Business Conference are all designed with family businesses’ needs at their heart. We also work in collaborative partnerships with family business specialists and other national family business associations and networks.
All of our bespoke events are designed with family business needs at their heart.
