Relevant and timely event programme

We like to keep things simple...

There are just two levels of membership!

Level One: Member

If you are looking for a vibrant, expansive, and highly supportive community you’re in the right place and Joining the Practice couldn’t be easier!

 

Just look at the Benefits of being a Member:

  • You have access to all offline and online events – in 2021 that’s one hundred and fifty online events alone!
  • No insistence on passing referrals as you simply work with who you want and when you want.
  • No single seat policies as we believe in a free market without restrictions.
  • No compulsory attendance just attend any session you want and when it suits your diary.
  • High-quality workshops for you to learn the latest way of doing things.
  • Expert Masterclasses enabling you to move forward at a pace to suit you.
 
At the moment you will also qualify for an initial business blueprint with Peter Roper, the Family Businessman, to really help make your membership work

Remember all our online events are FREE (unless stated otherwise) so no unexpected bills.

Uniquely all our online events are just 72 minutes long with no boring or time-wasting sessions from us!

We have an optional Practice Support Programme enabling attendees to encourage, learn from and develop each other and their business (with a small additional investment).

Just press the button below and off we go…

Go on you know you want to!
"Peter's approach to connecting with people and bringing them together comes as a breath of fresh air in a world (particularly during lockdown) where online networking can at times leave you feeling soulless. His knowledge and experience are as invaluable as it is interesting - and always delivered in Peter's classic style which makes it enjoyable and informative. Never a dull moment and always something to learn from the Family Business Man!"

To join the family the fee is just £72 for Membership per year! Fees do not attract VAT.

 

Level Two: Member Plus

Many of our members, just like you, want the opportunity to promote their business over and above simply attending events.

 

We have created Member Plus specifically for you to present at our Check-ins, Connect, Masterclass and Workshop sessions.

Every quarter we will invite you as a member of our Expert Panel to present at one or more of our sessions, doing our best to give you at least two sessions each year.
 
This is an exciting and proven chance to promote you and your business and is considered a highly desirable asset by our Expert Panel members.

Imagine having the status of being on our Expert Panel (which is considerable) and being backed with a full social media promotion campaign for every event.

If you qualify, you will get the opportunity to become a trusted Moderator gaining even more exposure for you and your business.

We run at least two speaking and presentation workshops exclusively for panel members to hone their skills each year. These sessions, called ‘How to create your presentation to gain maximum impact’ are regularly oversubscribed and are frequently re-attended by our panel members. They are also free to attend as a Member Plus delegate!

Member Plus is not for everyone, and frankly, not everyone will qualify for this level of membership, however if we have said we love you, we want you at this level, and you are excited at the chance to join us, then just hit the button below and let's get things moving!

PLUS, don’t forget you also get all the benefits of the Membership level as well, what an opportunity!

Go on you know you want to!

Feedback

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.

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.”
