The Great British Family Business

Our flagship national event

The Great British Family Business Conference is an annual event that brings delegates together from all over the UK to listen to a range of speakers who share insights into their journeys in business, the challenges they have faced along the way and their plans for the future.

Previous keynote speakers include Nick English (Bremont), Andy Rubin (Pentland Brands), Jenny Urquhart and Simon Cotton (Johnstons of Elgin) and George Vestey (Vestey Group Holdings).

Added to the mix is a panel discussion with leading family business owners, a selection of topical workshops and plenty of time for networking during the refreshment breaks with time to visit the exhibitors too.

The Great British Family Business conference is an integral part of the family business calendar too.

Don't take our word for it!  Here are some of the comments we have received from previous delegates:


"What a fantastic, vibrant and informative event. Undoubtedly the best conference that I have been to for many years. Great insights from excellent speakers that really struck a chord with me and I have taken away a lot of actions to consider for my family business. Thank you."

"You did so well, kept the atmosphere light yet informative and I am sure those who did attend will have gained great insights into other businesses, and I hope managed to speak to lots of others who were there as well."

"A fantastic event yesterday – you should be proud of what was achieved on the day and the great speakers who shared their stories."
