PwC sponsors The Family Business Conference 2018

Designed for regional family businesses looking to learn from, and network with, successful peers in an open, safe and friendly environment

We're delighted to announce that we're sponsoring the third annual Cumbria Family Business Conference for 2018. The event will be held at the Castle Green Hotel, in Kendal, on Thursday 11 October. 

The all-day conference will see contributions and speeches from over 18 highly-respected, locally based, family business leaders of companies old, new, large and small. Highlights include stories and insight from Lakeland, James Cropper PLC, Grasmere Gingerbread and Denys Shortt OBE of DSC Group.

Our PwC exhibition team will be made up of experienced, family business experts and they'll be stationed throughout the day at our PwC stand (towards the back of the main conference area). Our team will be talking with delegates about a number of key family business issues and topics including; next generation or legacy planning, R&D tax incentives, cyber security, business insights & analytics, and more. 

We're also keen to invite and see many of the local family businesses we work with in the North West attend. Cumbria is home to a buzzing family business community, with the majority of the county’s businesses being family run (nearly 90%).

We're so pleased to be part one of the biggest highlights in the regional family business calendar and we hope you can join us in October for a day of sharing insights, experiences and celebrating the ongoing success of regional family businesses.
