Play • 1 hr 4 min

To celebrate Family Business Week here in the UK we are looking back over some of our favourite interviews with UK family businesses.

Today's interview is with Jonathan Falder of HMG Paints. We talk about how their culture is embodied throughout the business with multiple generations of the same families working for HMG.

We also hear about Jonathan's experience of coming face to face with an alien!

About Family Business Week

Family Business Week is a week long celebration of family businesses as a force for good

The pandemic has once again highlighted the vital role that businesses play in supporting their local communities, and it is these community-focused values that are at the heart of family businesses. Rooted in their local communities, family businesses provide a long-term, sustainable model which views business as a force for good. 

Family Business Week 2021 is a week-long celebration of family businesses, particularly in relation to supporting local communities across all parts of the UK, and providing a platform to highlight the role of business as a force for good. 

Led by the Institute for Family Business (IFB), the voice of the UK’s family business sector.

Support the Show

The podcast is entirely self-funded by me. I am not looking for sympathy as it is something that I love to do and I have a passion for providing great content for family businesses across the world. Some listeners have asked for ways in which they can support the show, be that through reviews, sharing with friends or a donation. As such I have set up a page that outlines all the ways that you can support what I am doing.
