Sian Steele, Private Business and family confidante
Whether to pass on the business, or not. How to hand over but continue to protect and provide for the family in the future. How to hold the family together. When you’re faced with big decisions, it can feel like everyone has a point of view. It can be difficult to keep perspective, to keep sight of what’s important. The pressure can build, as can the feeling of isolation.
Over the years Sian has helped many family business leaders grapple with the really big questions in their life. She’s probably seen it all, from squabbles and tears of frustration to tears of happiness; Sian has helped families work through difficult and sometimes emotional issues in relation to the businesses they own. She knows that different things help different people. From long walks to talk things through (or sometimes say nothing at all), through to sharing her experience and helping to weigh up options. She’s a sounding board that helps leaders of family businesses get to the right place, for them, their families and the employees that look up to them.
