"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!" 
Lucy Edgar - Human Everything
To join the family, the annual fee is just £197 for Membership Plus. Fees do not attract VAT.

Membership is subject to availability and is confirmed with Founder Peter Roper The Family Business Man.

The next step is simply to send an email to Peter asking to be a member and if space is available Peter will confirm how to enrol you into the practice!


More Happy People...
"I particularly appreciate Peter's direct and no-nonsense approach! If you are looking for a long-term networking group to grow your business, look no further!  Peter's Family Business Practice offers a genuine and relaxed space for people to get to know each other and build their businesses. You are not going to experience those "30-sec sales pitch" stuff where nobody was listening or engaging. Instead, you will learn something useful from a fellow member and continue to explore the topic in a breakout room. You're given PLENTY of time to demonstrate who you are and what you do: it's not an elevator but a nice revolving restaurant!"

"I just attended a seminar/training session presented by Peter. Very well researched using his vast knowledge and experience, Peter is a total professional and a very personable individual who brings out the best in people. I thoroughly recommend the Family Business Practice as a networking and business development group"
Neill Hall - Travel Counsellors

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

I have had the honour of knowing Peter for a number of years through my Family Business Practice membership. Peter has an infectious passion for supporting business, family businesses, to ensure that their unique features are celebrated and deliver more success.

To ensure they are not seen as 'just a family business'. Peter has turned the invaluable face to face meetings around into 72 minute meetings online, whilst retaining the passion, engagement, and energy in the meetings. I couldn't recommend Peter and the family business enough.

Claire Lawton Acorn HR Support

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.”
