Family Business United is once again devoting a week to celebrating the contribution of family firms to the Scottish economy. 2023 sees the return of Scottish Family Business Week which will run from October 2 to October, incorporating a number of events during the week.
During the week the Scottish Family Business Road Trip will see the sponsored car visiting a number of family businesses, getting behind the scenes and showcasing what they do on a daily basis, where they do what they do too. Each year this is a real journey of discovery and we know that 2023 will be no exception. Further details will be announced in due course but if you are interested in a visit please do get in touch.
We will also be hosting a networking/drinks reception in Glasgow which will see the family business community come together and a dinner in Edinburgh too.
Throughout the week we will be sharing plenty of news and insights on all manner of family business topics and engaging with as many family businesses as possible too.
As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of Family Business United explains, "We have a significant number of family business members across Scotland and it is always a pleasure to visit as many of them as possible. Family businesses are at the very heart of the Scottish economy and it is a pleasure to champion them. As an organisation we have published the only report into the oldest family firms in Scotland and also reports into the contribution of the top 100 Scottish family firms too, and with family business at the centre of all that we do, we are looking forward to getting back on the road and uncovering some more great Scottish family business stories in October too."
"Scottish Family Business Week is always inspiring as there are so many great family firms with strong narratives, a real sense of purpose and deeply rooted entrepreneurial spirit that gives a nod to the past with eyes firmly focused on the future."
