Family Businesses Together
Having been a previous guest speaker at the Coutts Family Business Forum
, it was rather nice being invited to sit, relax and listen to other family business owners and their stories this week. The evening was in a fabulous setting in Plumtree, Nottingham, at the Carriage Hall
It's always fascinating to hear the debate about whether a family business all about the 'business' or about protecting the 'family' - we certainly heard arguments on both sides and most importantly it's what the 'next generation' family business owners need to understand for their own businesses.
Our guest speaker at this event was David Baldwin from Baldwins Accountants
. David works closely with his father and talked openly about his vision for the family firm and it's growth through acquisitions.
