The Family Business Network

We are delighted to have the team from The Family Business Network on board as our Commercial Partner. Their role is to promote the show for exhibitors and visitors and we certainly are looking forward to working with them.

Running a family business can be all consuming and The Family Business Network Ltd was created to help. We are the pivot point for family businesses looking for a safe environment to learn from each other, find relevant news, events and access innovative additional support when needed. Founded by Sue Coulson in 2014 when it originally started as a funded network via support from the Cumbria Growth Hub, the network has since developed and as of September 2016 the network became its own company, so Sue can continue her role as Family Business Ambassador and be the voice for family businesses across the region. Through Sue’s award winning work in Cumbria. The Family Business Network has now evolved to include Lancashire, Yorkshire and surrounding areas. We love signposting family businesses to relevant assistance, advice, or investment channels but equally thrive on our family business orientated events. Our Insight days, workshops and flagship Family Business Conference and the Cumbria Family Business Awards are all designed with family businesses’ needs at their heart. We also work in collaborative partnerships with the regional growth hubs, family business specialists and other national family business associations and networks.
