Success through Succession


STS is aimed at family business owners (and family members) who are committed to actively working towards a planned succession for their business within the next 10 years.

There is no financial cost to participate in the STS programme but participants must be prepared to commit their own time to work with the Project Team to articulate their plan for business succession.

STS offers participants:

  • 1:1 mentoring and coaching opportunities with a range of family business experts
  • A series of workshops focussed on exploring your family’s solutions to your particular succession issues
  • Networking opportunities with other family business owners across the 3 regional areas (the West of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland)
  • Best Practice visits

Recognising each family’s unique qualities, we will provide every family with individual support, development opportunities and access to expertise to help ensure that planning for succession is a positive experience.
