Trevor speaks at the Families in Business: Ask the Adviser event

Sutton Coldfield hosted the first Ask the Adviser event, organised by the supportive team at Families in Business.  With Hobbs House bakery's Trevor Herbert as guest speaker, the day was a great success, many reporting his talk to have been inspiring.  Trevor is a spokesperson for Families in Business.

Dani Saveker shared her thoughts on the success of the day:

“I first thought of the Ask the Adviser concept for family businesses a couple of years ago based on my own experience and frustration when trying to access good advisers to help me take our family business forward. Time is a limited resource and so having a room of assorted advisers on hand for confidential discussions is very powerful. Whilst it’s a little like speed dating for SME family-owned businesses, we’re delighted with the reaction and value it gives to family businesses and also to the advisers.

As the first ATA event, we wanted to have a fitting guest speaker and for us, the choice was simple – it had to be Trevor. Trevor, as one of our  FIB Champions, has been a great supporter, friend and advocate of our approach and for the family business sector as a whole. We were privileged to have him be part of Ask the Adviser with our guests and advisers all feeling inspired by the story of Hobbs House Bakery.”
