The Covid-19 pandemic has taught us many lessons. It has afforded many family businesses the opportunity to take a step back to review, reflect and plan.

The National Centre for Family Business will host a one-hour webinar to discuss the important of strategy in growing your family business.

Prof Brian Harney from DCU Business School will provide a detailed insight into strategic planning, which may help family businesses as they continue to navigate the health pandemic, Brexit, and the ongoing economic challenges.

This will be followed by a panel discussion with industry experts including Rob Warnock, Head of Strategy & Proposition, AIB Bank and Darren McDowell, Senior Partner with Harbinson Mullholland, a Belfast based accountancy firm and home of the Northern Ireland Family Business Forum.

Greg Tuohy and Éadaoin Carrick, brother and sister and owners of Cantec Group will also join the line-up on 14th May. Greg has been Managing Director of Cantec since 2011 and Éadaoin is the Operations Director of Cantec and current President of the Waterford Branch of Network Ireland.
