Petra manages a marketing team of six people and relishes the variety, creativity and of course challenge that her job brings. She sits on the board of Hospitality Ulster and also of Aware. She and her husband Bill have a 7-year-old daughter Caoilinn.
Petra will give guests an insight into her business, the Beannchor Group and an honest account of the challenges that make “family businesses awesome but also a pain the a**”.
At a family business event in 2015, we had a team of professional actors take to the stage to act out three typical scenarios from a family business.
This proved to be really informative and entertaining. It was also really useful as the businesses in the room where given the opportunity to discuss the issues presented, looking at the business and emotional dilemmas of each character. The three scenarios which will be played on stage are: The Generation Game, The New Generation and Sibling Rivalry.
