What people have said...
Just a quick note to congratulate you on another highly successful Midlands Family Business Awards. It was a fantastic evening on Thursday, a fitting celebration of family business and the culmination of a huge amount of hard work, enthusiasm and inspiration. Huw Davies, The Institute for Family Business
Our experience of the qualifying process and the awards evening itself is one not to be forgotten. We would certainly encourage any company, large or small, to take up the challenge and enter for an award. Charles Bentley, Charles Bentley & Son
The Family Business Awards team are just fantastic, they helped us every step of the way. Ped & Charlotte were always on the end of the phone when I was having a crisis, nothing was too small or too big to deal with - Charlie Marshall - Marshalls Coaches
The waiting is over!
