NI Family Business Forum / October 2020

Northern Ireland’s family businesses have been weathering the storm of the pandemic. That’s according to a survey carried out by Ulster University on behalf of the NI Family Business Forum which shows that while almost all businesses are concerned about the effect of the crisis on turnover and cashflow, relatively few are worried about losing their businesses and most say that tough times have united their management teams. Richard Buckley talks to Darren McDowell, Senior Partner at Harbinson Mulholland and chair of the Forum alongside Ian Smyth, a family business expert and business lecturer at Ulster University.
