Group 40 Created with Sketch.

The future of family business is here- it’s time to talk

Hannah Barlow, Joint Managing Director at Dunsters Farm.

A one-of-a-kind, free to attend, workshop for the next generation of leaders joining their family business will take place on Wednesday 6th November in Lancashire.

If you are the next generation to join the family business, or the next generation thinking about joining the family business, then this workshop is for you.

What are we talking about?

We’re discussing all things communication within family businesses.

You will explore with your peers how to tackle the challenges of ‘talking business’, ‘talking change’, ‘talking innovation’, ‘talking leadership’ and what gets in the way of productive conversations.

Working in small groups, you may find that your peers can shed light on some of these challenges.
