About the Practice

Family Business Practice is a unique Midlands-based networking organisation for owner-managed and family businesses and businesses that supply owner-managed and family businesses.

The Family Business Practice is for you if:
  • You work so you can have a fridge that is always full
  • You know things are going well when you can sleep at night
  • You think it’s important to work with people you know, like and trust
  • You are based in the Midlands
The Family Business Practice is the brainchild of Peter Roper, the Family Business Man. He wanted to build a network of owner-managed and family businesses who understand that family businesses are different. In doing so, he wanted to help some of the 3 million family businesses in the UK to feel more valued and be more celebrated than they sometimes are.
Today, the Practice has over 60 members ranging from husband-and-wife consultancies to businesses employing over 200 people. The one thing they all have in common is that they are all family businesses and they think, act and do differently to their corporate equivalents. It’s also growing rapidly, thanks to both word of mouth of happy members but also our active marketing strategy. You can find out more about how we promote the Family Business Practice here.
The Family Business Practice’s charity partner is Mary Stephens Hospice, which provides specialist holistic care and support to patients and their families in the Dudley borough.
“As a member of the Family Business Practice I have attended a number of the events - and have found them to be excellent – both enjoyable and useful for the development of my own business. The venue and catering are good, the speakers interesting and the broad range of attendees never fails to make for helpful contacts and the building of good, solid long-term professional relationships – Thank You.”
