Looking after the Family from the Grave – Estate Planning

Join us on Tuesday 20 November 2018 with Rosey Batt, CEO of Rosey Batt & Associates and Kent Aughey, Founder and Executive Director of Ashington.

Rosey and Kent will discuss how for businesses to grow they need innovation and a leadership team that will challenge the status quo.

Key points being covered in this session will include:

  • What does good governance look like to family businesses?
  • Are family businesses taking gender diversity seriously?
  • Our survey results showed 15.79% of respondents had no women in leadership roles. Have we lost sight of diversity as a growth strategy in family businesses?
  • As always, these Adviser Connect events prove to be a great environment to come meet other advisers in SA or stay in touch with those in your network.

Celebrate 18 @ Covent Gardens @ Covent Gardens, 142 Boundary Street West End, Brisbane
Nov 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The family business community in Australia is part of a group of incredibly successful people, from every type of business unified by the passion, warmth, challenges and complexities that is family business.

We invite you to Celebrate 18, our final official event for 2018 on Thursday 22 November. Bringing together the FBA QLD community, this is a great opportunity to highlight some of your own business accomplishments with family and friends and gain an insight into how FBA is supporting family business through our new initiatives.

This event is hosted by Lachlan, Duncan, Karen and Gavin Bird at Covent Garden. From childcare to airports and pubs, the Bird family has been successfully running family businesses for decades. Second generation brothers, Lachlan and Duncan, branched out from childcare and aerospace into the vibrant night life of the Valley and West End. After great success with the Woolymoth in Fortitude Valley in late 2017, the boys took the challenge to bring the substance of Covent Garden in London’s West End to Brisbane’s West End. With a nod to their British cousin, Convent Garden gives their customers the opportunity to indulge in a delicious Pimms or Aperol Spritz on tap, or sample from one of our 120 Gins available across their comprehensive drinks list in a lush alfresco setting.

 

Join us at this stunning location for a relaxed drink to learn more about the success of the Bird family across three major businesses while celebrating the year that was. Guest will sample classic canapés and enjoy a glass of wine or beer.

We hope you can attend to ‘celebrate 18’ with us and to look ahead to 2019 with inspiration and motivation.

Celebrate 18 @ Clancy’s Fish Pub Fremantle @ Clancy’s Fish Pub, 51 Cantonment St, Fremantle, WA
Nov 28 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

 

The family business community in Australia is part of a group of incredibly successful people, from every type of business unified by the passion, warmth, challenges and complexities that is family business.

We invite you to Celebrate 18, our final official event for 2018 on Wednesday 28 November. Bringing together the FBA WA community, this is a great opportunity to highlight some of your own business accomplishments with family and friends and gain an insight into how FBA is supporting family business through our new initiatives.

Following the success of last year’s event, our hosts Joe and John Fisher, owners of Clancy’s Fish Pub have opened their doors again to FBA.  Joe and John started Clancy’s 30 years ago aiming to be an essential part of the community; a meeting place, a refuge from the stresses of daily life, a place for friendship and entertainment. They believed Clancy’s should include everyone, and discriminate against no-one. That it should provide good food, wine, music, laughter and, of course, the beers we love, served with care and knowledge. During the past 30 years, three more Clancy’s have been added to the West Australian landscape including Canning Bridge, City Beach and the most recent in Dunsborough.

Join us and our family business host to celebrate the year that was with family and friends at the original fish pub and leader of the pack.

Guests will sample classic fish and chips and legendary seafood, to be enjoyed with a glass of wine or beer while the kids run wild in Princess May Park, adjacent to the pub. Truly a pub (and occasion) for all.

We hope you can attend ‘Celebrate 18’ with us and look ahead to 2019 with inspiration and motivation.

** A welcome drink and light snacks will be provided.  Cash bar and menu will be available should you wish to stay on for dinner.
