The FIB team bring over 114 years first hand experience and knowledge of being families in business
Even from her time within the family business, Dani spoke on the topic of family business challenges and dynamic which led her to study and develop what has since become the framework for FIB's offer - including consultancy and intervention, peer group development and action learning.
While studying the aspects of family businesses, Dani recognized that many family businesses - large and smaller - exhibited similar tendencies that prevented the family members from achieving success and contentment. She spent years modernizing the topic and developed a process that teaches individuals, families and boards what really constitutes a thriving family in business in today’s environment and how to achieve that.
Directly with family businesses, as a team we have:
We have helped businesses and individuals by working through a highly specialised processes which have enabled expansions, open branches, move premises, begin in house production, develop and move forwards with their business, exit businesses, start new careers, develop their roles, build protection for them and their businesses, sell to employees and much much more - all with new confidence and clarity.
The work we do through FIB is highly confidential, skilled, responsible - and an absolute privilege
What clients say:
"The Families in Business consultancy approach (FIB GLAS) is a truly holistic exercise that would benefit every family business, large and small, across the UK. As a minimum requirement FIB provides companies with a ‘health check’ to establish where the business is currently positioned within the marketplace and gives employers a good understanding of their pool of talent.
However FIB can also get to the absolute root cause of problems within family businesses and facilitate workable solutions to the benefit of all.For our business, FIB has been a lifeline. By facilitating a fun and unorthodox strategic review of the company, FIB has empowered us to make the right business decisions that will be to the benefit of all involved in our company.
Moreover, having felt completely stuck in our decision-making, we now believe we are creating exciting future business development opportunities. By working with all members of our business and extended family, FIB has unlocked a new pool of knowledge and expertise close to the business, but hitherto unexplored, and enabled us to plan for the future of the company with great optimism and confidence. The FIB team are friendly, empathetic and make it a really enjoyable experience. They provide a confidential forum for airing concerns, worries, hopes and dreams. It is an inclusive experience meaning that everyone feels and is part of the journey. This also means that, whilst there will always be key decision-makers, everyone should be able to see the rationale and process behind such choices."
