Kick-off your business year with vital planning and crisis management tools from the family business experts.

The National Centre for Family Business will start 2021 with an exclusive research launch detailing the findings of its All-Ireland Family Business Survival Survey. The study, a cross-border collaboration between Dublin City University and Ulster University, followed the profess of family businesses from the onset of the covid-19 crisis in mid-March 2020 until November 2020. Across a seven-month period, the research team engaged with 251 family business owners, leaders and employees and documented their experiences and learnings.

During this free webinar attendees will hear from leading experts on the project and will discuss the launch of the resulting practitioner report – Surviving a Crisis as a Family Business. The report's evidence-based findings and best-practice recommendations will provide a vital resource for business owners and leaders for years to come, as they continue to navigate the global health pandemic, Brexit, and the ongoing economic crisis.
