Celebrating the significant contribution of family firms globally -
We are THE family business champions

Family businesses are the main contributors to national economies the world over through the jobs they provide, income they generate and the wealth they create, not forgetting the impact they have on the broader communities in which they operate too.


Family businesses intrinsically do, or want to do the right thing, acting as agents of change and taking responsibility for their actions. They care and with a shared purpose take long-term decisions and act as stewards for next generations. They want to do the right thing, creating sustainable businesses and recognise the urgency associated with the need to care for the world in which they live too.  They take their responsibilities seriously.  They have a story to tell, a passion and pride in what they do and continue to invest in their businesses, their people and their communities.


Family Business United has the family business community at our core.  We are recognised globally as champions of family firms and seek to celebrate the contribution they make, ensure they obtain recognition for what they do on a daily basis and, to provide the necessary support and resources to enable them to continue to flourish for generations to come.
