On 7 October, we are delighted to invite you to deep-dive into the research and make-up of transition-ready family businesses following the release of Grant Thornton and Family Business Australia and Family Business New Zealand’s Family Business Survey 2021 report. We will be joined by Belinda Lyone, co-CEO of Complete Office Supplies who shared her family’s business transition journey in the report. Belinda will take part in a Q&A session in the webinar with Robert Powell, FBA Specialist Accredited Adviser at Grant Thornton.
