The Family Business Network is a trusted community for collaboration and learning.

We connect the family business community to provide a voice, a sense of belonging and an environment for learning and development. We create unique and valuable peer to peer contact and opportunities for generations of families to share their experiences and insight.

Our programme of online and face to face events includes family case studies, topical debates, exclusive insight events, conferences, regional awards, development boards and peer group sessions. Additional services include PR and Media distribution, Video production, senior recruitment, HR consultancy and business advisory support.

Established in 2014, the network has developed an engaged community of family businesses, influencers and partners that support this sector.

We are not a membership model but do have a subscription channel for additional content and family business interviews which our network really values.

Overall, the Network is a global connected community.
