New Workshops from the Scottish Family Business Association


It’s inevitable that family businesses, with their mix of generations, active and inactive shareholders, family and non-family employees, may encounter internal conflict which can be both serious and crippling for the business.

The SFBA believe it is crucial to explore how a business family can manage their differences in order for their business to continue and flourish.

This workshop will give you practical help and expert advice in order to avoid the litigation route and steer your business, or your client’s business, towards mediation. In many cases, mediation will almost certainly avoid long term damage to relationships which is particularly crucial when family are involved.

This topic for this interactive workshop is very popular so places are limited – we strongly recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless

Mr frank.

Thank you Claire! I'll post a blog about what's going on in Latin Amercia in FB research. All the best,

Thanks for your input and assistance at the SFBA seminar during the week. Family Businesses in general do not achieve due recognition in the marketplace and the more the word is spread the better for all concerned.
It was good to hear from other advisers and the open forums were illuminating.
Have a good Easter.

HI Claire, thanks for a very informative day the information provided will without doubt add value to both my clients and my business, it was fantastic to see to many people who are comitted to assisting business owners in ensuring the future of the businesses in a way that is beneficial to all parties concerned.

I look forward to the next event

I particularly enjoyed the open discussion & breakout element and I think the rest of the people in the room felt the same. Perhaps discussion around case studies would be interesting? See what people come up with in terms of solutions or things to consider. Or maybe create a fictional company with a particular set of issues and by the end of the day two teams have to come back to the group and present their solutions for open forum discussion. I think that would be fun and engaging with a good mix of business owners and advisors etc. What do you think?

Claire, Thanks for inviting me to join.

I will be attending the following event that might be of interest to you:

Happy Easter!

Hi Claire! I certainly will :-) Thank you for facilitating on Tuesday, it was a brilliant day and very insightful. Ken & I are very much looking forward to the next event!

Hi Claire. Good to hear from you. This is fun isn't it, just like Facebook. Yes I'll be going on Friday, shame you can't make it. Hope to catch up soon. Louise

Dear Claire,

Many thanks for writing. I started at Westminster Business School 1 Feb. New place, same job researching & teaching SME growth. I only wish I practised what I preach in entrepreneurial activity as this sort of network could really connect us researchers with entrepreneurs in large parts of the world outside the UK where entrepreneurship is part & parcel of human survival.

Speak soon,
