Thank you to Pronto Software (Event Sponsor) Finlease and Sharpe Bros (Session Sponsors) and MakeitCheaper (Display Sponsor) StoryNational (Photography Partner) and Paper Stork (Event Supporter).

Now that we are done with the 2018 Family Business Insights we are looking ahead to the planning for next year. If you are interested in being part of our conference committee, potentially speak at, present a case study or be involved as a sponsor, please let me know!

State Committee elections are commencing soon so now is the time to be part of the NSW committee! Nomination forms and further information will be mailed to you soon and if you have any questions about committee role and commitment please contact me.

Our Three Minutes With Family Business showcase this month is Anna Cesarano from Doltone House who are sponsoring and providing the venue for our Women in Family Business Lunch on June 26, formerly an annual event that we are starting again. Our keynote speaker for this event is Pippa Hallas, CEO of Ella Bache followed by an impressive panel comprising of Natasha Chadwick, NewDirection Care, Kirsten Taylor-Martin, Grant Thornton and Madeline Davey, Tynan Motors.

I look forward to seeing you at an event in the future, as always, any comments or feedback on your membership or our events, I’d be more than happy to hear from you.
