Julian welcomes National Family Business Show to York
May 13, 2019
Last week Julian was invited to open the inaugural National Family Business Show at York Racecourse, organised by the sector’s representative body Family Business United.
The event brought together 240 delegates and 50 exhibitors to share experiences and advice on running a family business, a sector that is an important part of the local economy of York and North Yorkshire.
After opening the show, Julian said: “Family businesses play a vital role in our economy, and in the everyday life of communities up and down the country. From my own experience in a family farming business, I well know the unique benefits and challenges they involve, and am delighted to support the National Family Business Show taking place here in York.”
In a modern economy that can often feel impersonal and complex, family enterprises provide a human focus and attention to quality which other businesses struggle to match, benefiting both consumers and employees. Family-run enterprises are rooted in their areas, and serve customers with pride and care. It is in everyone’s interests to see them thrive in York and across the country”
