On this weeks show, I speak about the topic of 'professionalising' the family business. The term is not one that I am a huge fan of as it can suggest that until that point everything you did was unprofessional.

I explain what the term 'professionalisation' means and the circumstances under which it can arise.

I also look at some of the common concerns or barriers to professionalisation and how to overcome them.

There are many benefits to professionalising your family business and I summarise these as well.

The episode I refer to where I speak in more detail about Non-Executive Directors can be found by following this link:

Support the Show

The podcast is entirely self-funded by me. I am not looking for sympathy as it is something that I love to do and I have a passion for providing great content for family businesses across the world. Some listeners have asked for ways in which they can support the show, be that through reviews, sharing with friends or a donation. As such I have set up a page that outlines all the ways that you can support what I am doing.
