familybusinesspractice-connectWe run regular sessions to enable members and guests to network practically and with purpose in a 72 Minute Zoom call session.


Hosted by Peter Roper we have a guest speaker which usually is one of our members and then our attendees share information about their business and what they are looking for.

There is an opportunity for several referrals and relationships to be created in this fast-paced yet relaxed environment.

"The Family Business Practice Connect session is a fantastic way to find out more about what members and guests offer and tell everybody how you're helping people come through these challenging times. Rich Brown gave a great talk about creating our virtual presence and Peter helped put us at ease and get maximum value from the call. You can quickly get 121s lined up and finally get things moving again!" Dr. Dave Bird dave@smallbizdigitalmedia.com

"After attending my first Practice Connect session yesterday I would just like to say both how much I enjoyed it and how useful it was. 
 Video meetings with many people on them are difficult at the best of times and after an hour or so you may only have contributed a few words.  Practice Connect is very different.  In a physical setting you may describe them as more intimate.  With only half a dozen people involved in a friendly and supportive way it is easy to make a contribution to the meeting and really feel part of it.  I would also suggest that these sessions are an excellent way for new members to find out about the Family Business Practice and really get involved" Ian Jarvis

How to use a three-step plan to increase your chance of more business post-COVID 19


Except it isn’t post Covid 19 is it?

The new norm is going to be with us for a considerable time and what we need right now is proven methods to attract, develop and maintain clients.

And generate cash into your business.

A recent survey of Family Busines Practice members proved conclusively that generating more business was the number one topic of interest – so here is a session to address the issue head-on!

Award-winning speaker, best selling author and founder of the Family Business Practice Peter Roper has over forty years of business development experience and in this session, he will share a simple and effective plan to do just that!

So, no gimmicks, no new-fangled ideas, simple and effective tried, tested and proven techniques that will work in your business if you chose to use them.

By the end of the session, you will know why the plan works, exactly what to do and when to do it.

PLUS, you will have the opportunity to share details about you, your business and if appropriate, arrange 121 meetings post the event – that is what a Practice Connect session is all about!

All in a 72 Minute Zoom session.

This session is open to both Practice members and visitors, has limited space and is expected to fill very quickly so book in now!

The session is free of charge.
