    Family Business for Sustainable Development

    Family Business for Sustainable Development

    It can be quite intimidating to know how and where to start and so in this episode I speak with Andrew Bryson who is Head of Business Transformation at https://www.fbn-i.org/ (FBN International).
    What is Sustainability?According to the UN’s own website, sustainability is defined as
    “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” In the show Andrew and I discuss the joint initiative between The UN and FBN-i. This has been called Family Business for Sustainable Development and you can read loads more about it https://fbsd.unctad.org/pledge/ (here.)
    To help family businesses as much as possible there are ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ that you can commit to and use as a way to focus your minds on what you want to address.
    In addition “The Pledge” focusses on four key areas:
    Sustainable Growth
    Environmental Stewardship
    Social Inclusion
    Good Governance
    We discuss what this means for you and your business in the episode.

    Demystifying Insolvency

    Demystifying Insolvency

    The past year or so has seen businesses facing unprecedented trading conditions and whilst some have thrived, others have not and are simply surviving. Some may be facing the difficult position of looking at the ongoing viability of their business.
    On this show I am joined by Gareth and Steph Buckley from The Insolvency Company. We look at when a business becomes insolvent and the steps you can take to understand your position.
    If you feel your business is struggling, there are options and we cover these in our discussions.
    You can find out more about The Insolvency Company by visiting their website which is https://www.theinsolvencycompany.co.uk/ (https://www.theinsolvencycompany.co.uk/)

    Digitisation

    Digitisation

    One of the elements to the last year or so that we may look back on as a silver lining to the cloud that has been the global pandemic is that it has accelerated certain elements of how we run our businesses.
    One area this has been seen is in the digitisation of the family business. Whether that is in our processes, our documentation or simply in how we meet with others using technology in the absence of an ability to meet face to face.
    However, digitisation is also seen as one of the areas of business that we find more challenging and so on this weeks so I speak to Edouard Janssen and Edouard Thijssen of Trusted Family about how they tackled the issue of digitisation in their own family businesses and how this launched a product that other families can use.
    Their story highlights the opportunities that may exist within your own family business and the tips that they share will help you with how to get started.
