Following last year’s postponement, the IFB Annual Conference returned in June 2021 to provide a forum for family business owners, managers and experts from the UK and internationally to reflect on their experiences and prepare for the road ahead with curiosity and imagination.
This year’s Conference was delivered online for the first time. Some of the key questions we explored included:
- How to navigate this uncertain world to ensure your business stays strong for generations to come
- How your family business can remain agile whilst carrying forward its legacy
- Why sustainability is a family business imperative
- What conclusions can we draw from the political landscape and how they affect your family business?
Most of the Conference Programme will be made available to all registrants for three months. If you would like to access the On Demand track of the Conference, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Reflections from IFB National Conference 2019
"Simply the event for any business family wanting to develop, learn and share from the experiences, and mistakes, of others. I attend with non-family members as we professionalise our Board. Preparation for my presentation this year created new contacts and multiple insights: this has already impacted our business" Thomas Martin, ARCO
"The IFB National Conference is an opportunity to hear from some world class speakers from the family business world, and to share experiences with other families in a relaxed, private environment" Ross Warburton, Warburtons
"IFB National Conference is the largest UK family business event of the year, with family and business members coming together from across the country. As a family business owner, it is always useful and inspiring to hear the stories of other families. It helps us learn how others have been managing similar challenges to ours" Jonathan Wild, Bettys & Taylors
