The Family Business Conference 2019

Share this article

Following in the wake of the established and highly successful Cumbria Family Business Conference, also run by The Family Business Network, founder Sue Howorth is launching the conference in Lincolnshire for the first time, in partnership with ourselves and Langleys Solicitors.

With an inspirational line-up of speakers, interactive topical discussions and live interviews, the conference is designed to highlight the strengths of family businesses, look at challenges facing this important sector and offer valuable family business insights through peer to peer learning. The conference is aimed at family business owners and leaders and those associated with the sector, that supports 12 million jobs in the UK.

The vibrant, diverse and highly experienced line up of speakers has been chosen for the first Lincolnshire conference to help generate fresh thinking and includes Guy Schanschieff MBE, founder and Managing Director of Bambino Mio, one of the world’s most widely used reusable nappy brands, Cal Bailey of NG Bailey, the UK’s leading independent engineering and services business, Phoebe Bagnall, a next generation successor of 140 year old family business Bagnalls, and Melanie Tillet, Director of Tillets, the independent family owned ladies clothing business.

Along with guest speakers there will also be a number of panel sessions. We are delighted to be hosting one of these panels which will focus on the role of non family members in senior roles in a family business.

With a growing number of successful family businesses taking on non family members in senior positions, as directors and non-executive directors, this panel session will look at the reasoning for this along with the opportunities and challenges it creates. The panel will include a family business member, a non family business senior post holder and a non exec working with a family business. Delegates will have the chance to learn more about the experience of the family businesses and individuals on the panel as well as the chance to pose their own questions.
