Victorian Minister for Small Business Russell Northe has launched the Family Business Consultants Network (FBCN), a new initiative that brings together a multi-skilled group of professional service providers united by the philosophy that collaboration is the best way to help Victorian families in business achieve long term peace and prosperity.
Launching the FBCN today, spokesperson Jon Kenfield said that family businesses face a unique set of concerns and challenges and that their needs are seldom well-served by using standard professional Approaches.
“FBCN is a genuine one stop shop where we all work to ensure that families and businesses receive responsive and trustworthy services based on their real needs,” he said. “Our goal is always to produce happier families and stronger businesses – never sacrificing one for the sake of the other.
“We have few greater challenges facing our economy and way of life than the enormous number of family businesses currently facing succession challenges. FBCN will help these businesses, of all types and sizes.”
The FBCN website is a portal designed to help anybody involved with family or private businesses to start the process of developing solutions. It contains details of the organisation’s independent service providers, including their backgrounds and contact details. There's a Frequently Asked Questions section and an open invitation to make initial contact without any obligation. For more information visit www.fbcn.com.au.
