Yorkshire Family Business Day 2019
8th October 2018 Paul Andrews
Join us in celebrating the contribution of family firms across Yorkshire in a day of social media activity and PR related activities.
Family Business United founder and champion of the family business sector, Paul Andrews, is delighted to announce Yorlshire Family Business Day 2019 which is taking place on February 11, 2019.
Family firms across the county 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 5 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, making a masive contribution to the Yorkshire economy too. All too often the endeavours of the family business sector are dismissed in favour of their non-family counterparts and the aim of Yorkshire 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.”
Family businesses the length and breadth of the county are taking part, sharing their pride and demonstrating their family ownership via a social media campaign using the hashtag #YorksFamilyBizDay2019 and posting banners/pictures on social media stating their ‘pride in being one of the family firms in Yorkshire today.'
As Paul concludes, “We have created a day for all Yorkshire 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. 2018 saw a phenomenal amount of pride being demonstrated by family firms across the county with a great volume of social media traffic and the plan is to make 2019 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.”
