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

We unite 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 in business to share their experiences and insight.

We provide research, publish news and great stories, nurture collaboration and help source the right people to work in and with our family business community.  Our programme of online and face to face events includes family case studies, topical debates, exclusive insight events, conferences and regional awards.

Established in 2014, under the leadership of Co-Directors Sue Howorth and Dave Clarkson together with their extended team, our network has developed an engaged community of family businesses, influencers and partners that support the sector.

We are an influential voice for family businesses across the UK and the network has a global reach.
