National Family Business Day 2017
Date: 21st September 2017 Price: £0
Family Business United brings together the UK family business community in a day of recognition!
Family Business United founder and champion of the family business sector, Paul Andrews, is delighted to announce National Family Business Day 2017 which is taking place on September 21, 2017.
Family firms across the UK are being asked to join the campaign to celebrate all that is great about the family business sector, something that is at the heart of what Family Business United is all about.
As Paul explains, “There are over 4 million family firms across the UK and not only do they employ significant numbers of people, generate significant tax revenues and support local communities, they are the backbone of the UK economy. All too often the endeavours of the family business sector are dismissed in favour of their non-family counterparts and the aim of National Family Business Day is to champion the sector, put family firms on the map and help to dispel the myths surrounding the family business sector.”
We are delighted to have some great family business ambassadors who are supporting our 2017 campaign including Charlie Mullins OBE and Richard Balson.
Family businesses the length and breadth of the country are taking part, sharing their pride and demonstrating their family ownership via a social media campaign using the hashtag #GBFamilyBizDay and posting banners on social media stating their ‘pride in being one of the 3 million family firms in the UK today.'
Family Business United is the UK champion of the family business sector sharing news, insights, research and best practice through its online platform and innovative events.
As Paul concludes, “We have created a day for all family firms to be proud of and by providing them with the resources needed to get involved are looking forward to a day of celebration that will undoubtedly put family firms on the map. 2016 saw a phenomenal amount of pride being demonstrated by famiuly firms across the UK with a great volume of social media traffic and the plan is to make 2017 an even bigger celebration.”
“Family businesses deserve all the support and recognition they get and we are proud to be championing this initiative to put them on the map”
