  • Title: Family Business Ireland
    Descriptive info: We (my wife and I) were dealing with a most uncertain situation.. We found the introduction to others in the same position and facing similar challenges enabled us to openly discuss and share our thoughts.. The peer support is great.. It takes a little time to become fully confident that the environment is fully confidential.. The issues discussed are sensitive and it is a privilege and rewarding to listen to others when they speak openly.. My advice is give time to build trust and be open about everything.. Those of us who set-up our own businesses need to appreciate our limitations and that at some time we will cease to be involved in the business we created.. Get good advice.. This is a specialist area.. You need to ensure that those advising have the skills, expertise and experience.. MD.. 25  ...   a unit many things were left unsaid and not discussed.. We found it difficult to deal with the future.. Whilst we had good financial and legal advice on the management of the business we had little advice and insight into the issues of ownership, governance and future management.. We were normal.. The removal of isolation and the sharing and learning with other family business owners assisted all of us greatly.. We have just completed a fully agreed transference from the first generation to the next generation.. It has taken five years!.. The Family Business team of advisors and facilitators have brought us all the way.. Without them I don t honestly know what way we would have gone.. They have infinite patience with a soft yet firm hand.. Happy to speak confidentially to any founders seeking to deal with the issue..
