Strathclyde Engage

Family Advantage: Lessons from Scotland's Wealth Creators

Family businesses make a significant contribution to the Scottish Economy. They have strong loyalty to their local communities; a well-developed sense of social responsibility and create around them clusters of suppliers, customers and advisers as well as employees.

Strathclyde Business School is committed to supporting family businesses in Scotland and has established the UK's largest family business research team based at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship.  In this special event for family businesses in partnership with Family Business United Scotland we will draw upon this research and share practical ways of capitalising on the natural advantage that family businesses can possess.

This event features a guest speaker – Jane Wylie-Roberts, CEO of award winning multi-generation family business Stafffinders.

Registration and refreshments will be available from 10.00am and you are welcome to stay for a networking lunch when the event closes at 12.00pm.  Following lunch, you may also be interested in staying to take part in taster CPD sessions on Authentic Leadership and Change Management.  Please select the sessions you'd like to attend when you register.
