On the 19th September, Australia celebrates National Family Business Day, a day designed to recognise the invaluable contribution family businesses make to the Australian economy, community and culture.

Tips to help you celebrate with your family, employees or clients

Family businesses are the backbone of Australia, with many of Australia’s largest and most loved companies starting off as a family business. Iconic Australian brands such as Taylors Wines, Coopers Brewery, Akubra Hats, Rossi Boots, Raine and Horne, Haighs Chocolates, Maggie Beer, Myer, Ugg Australia, Bundaberg Brewed Drinks and even our most famous Aussie cossie – Speedo, started life as a family business – and many remain family owned today.
