Drawing in part on the findings of our Global Family Business Survey, we will discuss how family businesses and their owners are uniquely positioned to stand out from their peers particularly where values and employee communications are concerned and would love to hear from you on where you see the family ownership creating part of your USP.

In the year of a General Election, the roundtable will be chaired by Rt Hon Alan Milburn who was a Member of the UK Parliament for Darlington between 1992 and 2010. During his time in UK politics he earned a reputation for being a radical reformer as part of then Prime Minister Tony Blair’s government. He served as Chief Secretary to the Treasury (1998-99) where he had responsibility for all aspects of public expenditure and the development of public-private partnerships. As Secretary of State for Health (1999-2003) he led a radical reform programme of health and social care services. After retiring from politics at the general election in 2010, he was appointed by Prime Minister David Cameron to review and report on child poverty and social mobility. He is also a long-suffering Newcastle United fan!

Alan’s insight on the political, economic and fiscal impact of potentially changing headwinds for family businesses, their owners and shareholders is one we hope will be insightful for those in the room.

Format: Arrive 3pm for a 3.15pm start. Expected close will be 4.45pm with time for networking afterwards for those who want to stay and connect.

Location: PwC Manchester office, 3 Hardman Square, M3 3EB
