Global Family Business Day 2019
Date: 25th November 2019 Price: £0
Join us online for an interactive day celebrating the contribution of family firms and their importance to the global economy.
At Family Business United ('FBU') we continue to champion the role of family businesses and their importance across the world. To support that endeavour we are delighted to invite you to join us in a day of social media activity and PR related activities to celebrate the important role played by family firms.
The inaugural Global Family Business Day is taking place on November 25, 2019. Our efforts championing family firms in the UK resulted in us trending on social media and our intention is for the same impact to be generated in November.
Family firms across the world, and the advisory organisations that support and champion their cause 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 Andrews, Founder of FBU explains, “Family firms employ significant numbers of people, generate significant tax revenues and support local communities, they are the backbone of economies the world over. All too often the endeavours of the family business sector are dismissed in favour of their non-family counterparts and the aim of Global 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.”
Organisations around the world are being invited to join the campaign, sharing their pride and demonstrating their involvement in the sector via a social media campaign using the hashtag #GlobalFamilyBizDay and posting banners/pictures on social media.
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 with an international reach and this is the latest innovative campaign that seeks to bring the global family business community together.
As Paul concludes, “We have created a day for everyone in the sector 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. We are really excited and looking forward to creating a lot of noise about family firms and all the good they do around the world.”
“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."
