PKF-FPM Accountants Managing Director Feargal McCormack was the guest speaker at a Family Business Breakfast Seminar hosted by Dundalk Chamber of Commerce which aimed to identify and resolve common challenges and issues faced by family businesses. The event at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Dundalk attracted a large number of delegates and Chamber President, Michael Gaynor confirmed there had been very positive feedback following the event.
Speaking at the event Feargal McCormack “thanked Dundalk Chamber for providing the opportunity to share his experience and offer practical advice in this area. Family Businesses are the backbone of our economy and it is vital that we harness all that is good within these businesses to maximise their potential and put the necessary structures in place to implement business succession in whatever form is appropriate to each individual business”.
Delegates commented that the event was both enjoyable and informative. There is a growing realisation that planning in family business is key to success and requires forethought and understanding which is why these seminars are a key part of informing and advising business owners of all the obstacles they may face or are not addressing.
