According to the Institute for Family Business, 87.6% of businesses in the UK are family businesses.

They employ more than 14 million people nationwide and make up more than 50% of the private sector workforce.

‘Family Fortunes’ will offer an insight into family-run businesses and explore how the business dynamic of working alongside those related to you may help, or occasionally hinder, growth and progression.

Hosted by Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell, the event will feature local entrepreneurs, leaders and family business owners.



The Good Business Festival is passionately non-exclusive. It’s not about what you do or who you know. It’s not about agreeing on everything all of the time. It’s about everyone working towards a better world – no matter where you’re starting from.
