Multiplier Event: Family Businesses as an Engine of Growth

Multiplier Event: Family Businesses as an Engine of Growth

May 2017 

Leeds Business School, Leeds Beckett University was delighted to host a multiplier event discussing family business research, policy and practice raising awareness and understanding of the FAME Project.

Students, practitioners and academics attended the multiplier event to promote the FAME project and family business research in Leeds.   The event was well attended, informative and engaging. Professor Leo-Paul Dana from Montpelier Business School and Dr Claire Seaman from Queen Margaret’s University made interesting observations on the nature and state of family business research. Two representatives from family business based in Yorkshire (A.W. Hainsworth of Leeds, and Street Food Chef of Sheffield) offered practice based real-world insights that served to stimulate a lively question and answer session.  The ability to adapt to changing market conditions and to have products and services that can feed business growth were just some of the many topics discussed.  Further information is available:
