Unwrapping the magic of family businesses
Sunday Times ‘Pick of the Week’ Podcast
Our MD Liz, and her daughter Leila, Business & Account Manager at Liz Lean PR, host our own podcast, ‘It Runs In The Family’.
Featuring a different family business in each episode, we explore the history and share the learnings from our guest’s experiences over the years. From breweries to garden centres, drink brands to crematoriums, family organisations come in all shapes and sizes and this podcast reveals the stories and lessons from within them.
We discover where human relationship migrates into business; the ups, downs, twists, turns and landmark moments that seal the fate of these fascinating organisations. We discuss how they’ve developed through the generations and the unique advantages they’ve had over their competitors. You’ll get to hear some brilliant life stories too; some to make you laugh and others that’ll warm your heart.
While LLPR has managed numerous corporate client accounts for many years, we also attract a number of family owned and operated businesses, due to our values-led approach. In early 2020, before the pandemic hit, we hosted a lunch event for our family business clients to meet. The discussion around challenges, learnings, plans, thoughts and stories proved valuable and we were pleased to be able to provide clients with an opportunity to hear from likeminded people.
Our ambition is that our new podcast will be a place where listeners can learn from family businesses, either as a family organisation themselves or as individuals interested in this unique way of operating.
As we begin our own journey into the delicate world of the family business, we’ve loved hearing the stories of those who have been there and done it and we hope you’ll enjoy listening these as much as we have.
