We were delighted to welcome family businesses from across Northern Ireland to celebrate National Family Business Day 2018 in the spectacular Observatory at the Grand Central Hotel.

Guests were genuinely awed by the décor and the views offered by the newly opened Observatory along with the delicious breakfast.

At the event we also launched our NI Family Business Forum programme of events for the coming months. As always, it is packed with a variety of innovative events and experiences that offer family firms an opportunity to network and learn from each other.

In November we host the first NI FBF road trip. Guest’s will visit Moira to literally get a taste of the family business sector in this beautiful County Down village. If sampling award winning locally distilled vodka, followed by dinner in a gastropub described by the Belfast Telegraph as “a revelation” is up your street’, then this is the event for you.

There are many highlights on the programme but one that is already generating buzz takes place in  March 2019 at The Merchant. We are delighted that Petra Wolsey Marketing Director of the Beannchor Group, owners of the Merchant, will deliver the keynote. Petra is followed by a genuinely innovative presentation - actors from Real Learning Ltd will perform some classic family business scenarios. It’s a format we have used once before and well, people still talk about it today!
