While each case is unique, and will be treated accordingly, there are common factors and concerns around the use of a Non-Executive Director. The most frequently asked questions are answered in the clip, and I invite you to call me, immediately, if yours are not covered. Remember, no two Non-Execs are alike, either!

Your business is very personal to you. My individual approach is designed to recognise that - and to ‘add value’ accordingly. I have assisted a wide variety of family business groups, and specialise in relating closely to the individual perspectives of family members and non-family members alike! Circa 50% of UK GDP is derived from businesses that are, or started as, family firms!

Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of this type of business is always key to helping them progress through growth, change and management succession.
