The Family Business Network is a trusted community for collaboration and learning.
We provide a safe and encouraging peer to peer environment that facilitates and fosters positive change, growth and sustainability for family businesses; creating experiences of value and insight for family businesses and the generations working within them.
Founded by Sue Howorth in 2014, who now works alongside her Co- Director Dave Clarkson and an extended team, the network has developed an engaged community of family businesses and those that support the sector. The network is the voice for family businesses across many regions of the country, originating in Cumbria and evolving across the North West, North East, Yorkshire & Humberside and East Midlands.
Unlike many other similar organisations, the Family Business Network is not a membership model meaning that as family businesses, you have complete control over what events, support or help you need.
