InvestSefton and The Good Business Festival presents Family Fortunes. 

According to the Institute for Family Business, 87.6% of businesses in the UK are family businesses employing more than 14 million people, and making up more than 50% of the private sector workforce.

But does family business mean good business?

Taking place at Southport Market and hosted by award-winning comedian, Andrew Maxwell, this session will explore both sides of the story. Is it easier to incorporate family values and make ethical, environmental and social decisions or can keeping it in the family complicate progression?
