PKF-FPM Managing Director Feargal McCormack was the guest speaker at a Family Business Breakfast Seminar hosted by Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce which aimed to identify and resolve common challenges and issues faced by family businesses. The event at The Grand Hotel, Malahide attracted a large number of delegates and Chamber Chief Executive Officer Tony Lambert confirmed there had been very positive feedback following the event.
Speaking at the conclusion of the event Guy Thompson, President of Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce shared his own business experience and said that he could identify with many of the issues discussed and admired Feargal’s passion during the very informative seminar. Guy suggested that everyone working or advising Family Businesses should take the time to consider the issues raised within the seminar and ensure that the governance procedures outlined are in place.
The seminar ended with the chance for questions and answers, refreshments and an opportunity to network with other guests and professionals.
Delegates commented that the event was both enjoyable and informative. There is a growing realisation that planning in family business is key to success and requires forethought and understanding which is why these seminars are a key part of informing and advising business owners of all the obstacles they may face or are not addressing.
