Learning and Development with Family Business at the forefront of the Practice

  • One big family
  • Member-driven
  • Encouraging, supportive, educational
  • We are the Family Business Practice
If you own a family business the pressure is all on you. Running your company, paying the bills, filling the fridge AND getting a decent night’s sleep? Easier said than done.
We believe that every family business owner needs support to start, build and grow their business. Being an owner/manager of a business can be a lonely journey but if you’re a member of the Family Business Practice you’re not on your own anymore. You’re part of one big business family which helps you make the right connections and stays with you through thick and thin. If you succeed, we succeed.

How can we help?
Do you sometimes feel isolated as a business leader? Running your own business comes with a lot of responsibility and plenty of highs and lows.

It can get lonely.

Would you benefit from being part of a vibrant and proactive community full of genuine business people?

How about access to high-quality training programmes, workshops and business support?
If the answer’s yes, the Family Business Practice might be the place for you. You can attend one of our events at no cost to see if we’re what you’re looking for. 

Three simple keys:
  • To help you fill the fridge and keep it filled on a day-to-day basis
  • Knowledge, friendship and support enable you to put your head on the pillow and sleep at night
  • Provide a proven and experienced platform enabling you to form long-term relationships with people you know, like and trust

Peter provided a great course with positive interaction between the delegates to help one another. It really helped to focus the mind on how to develop my business further during the strange Covid times we find ourselves in. Highly recommended.

Simon Baldwin - High House Wealth Management Ltd

I have been a member of the Family Business Practice for 12 months and always enjoy the opportunity the practice provides to learn and work with fellow members. Peter Roper is an inspiring leader and facilitator of the sessions.  Providing thought provoking subject content through a check in session, quality networking in connect session or creating learning sessions through his many business programmes I feel that the practice is a fundamental part of my business.


Jamie Pratt - Stockton Business Consulting

I've been privileged to attend Peter's Family Business Practice events over the last couple of years and they amazing events. Peter's energy is stunning and his dedication to helping family businesses and their owners is without measure.

If you've not had the chance to speak to Peter or attend one of his events then I highly recommend it. Really appreciate everything you do and thank you.

Dave James Coaching

After attending Peter’s speaking masterclass I now have 4 speaking opportunities.  Previously I would have turned them down – now I’m just excited and keen to get talking! I fully recommend training with Peter for excellent coaching, a safe place to make mistakes, receive feedback and perfecting your technique before giving presentations.

Claire Hill Hill HR Consultancy

I would strongly recommend any member to join this programme, I have learnt some really valuable tips and lessons across a number of different topics including networking, presenting and maximising client relationships…… I look forward to working with Peter more in the future developing me and my business.

“I’d recommend 'the Practice' to people who want to build their business on relationships not sales. When you do this, the sales look after themselves.”
