Family Business Member Testimonials

The Centre for Family Business has provided me with a wonderful opportunity for both personal and professional growth. The close-knit environment is welcoming and offers a chance to learn from unique perspectives within our business community.

SARAH MCNEIL | BMO NESBITT BURNS

 

I find the CFFB to be a very close knit group of people that feel very strongly in sharing their stories and ideas that they have experienced and may be of benefit to you and your business

PAUL DROUILLARD | DROUILLARD SAMBROOK KINGSTON LLP (DSK)

 

We are members of the CFFB because we are a family business that believes in supporting other family businesses, and the CFFB gives us wonderful opportunities to do so. Plus, it is great to be with people that share common values and so many common experiences.The speakers are entertaining and educational – you can’t discuss families in business without finding some humour along the way!

STEVE WAGLER | JOSSLIN INSURANCE

 

I love the sense of family community that we all bring together!! This past year I recently started attending more meetings and was involved in the Marketing group and I really feel we are very fortunate to belong to a wonderful organization, one that inspires us as a family company and keeps our focus on growing our company while keeping our feet on the ground.

LEIGH GRANT | WIN-LEADER CORPORATION

 

I would tell ANYONE in family business to join. There is comfort in knowing other family businesses experience the same problems as we do. I always tell people about the Centre.

STU GIBSON | GIBSON SOUND AND VISION

 

We joined the CFFB many years ago because we are small family business owners and thus appreciate the challenges and opportunities that other CFFB members face every day. We are continually touched by the stories we hear from CFFB members in personal interactions around the table and also the family business stories told at each event. As active members, we’re honoured to serve members and help them strengthen the financial tools and structures in and around their family businesses.

BRIAN OGILVIE | OGILVIE DAUGHERTY FINANCIAL SERVICES

 

Our experience with the CFFB has been just wonderful. The members, advisors and sponsors are open, friendly and helpful, but without the typical ‘sales push’ you can feel sometimes at other networking events. Knowing that we are all in family business adds another level of bond to the entrepreneurial connection one feels with other business owners. The speakers have been entertaining and informative, and the family business stories continue to inspire and teach. We will be members for a long time…worth every penny.

GILLIAN REES | REES COMMUNICATIONS

 

The CFFB provides the opportunity to share one’s positive and negative issues with a group of business persons who will respect the topics. The members will share their experience and solutions if they had similar issues in their organization. Support, integrity and in confidence discussions are the norm in the CFFB. It is a superb group of persons who are committed to building relationships and assisting each other in any way that they can.

DAVE SEYLER | RIVERSIDE BRASS

 

I would (and do) speak very highly of the organization. I thoroughly enjoy the seminars. They are always well organized. The people are wonderful. Also, the communication is great.

Roundtable Member Testimonials

Business is becoming more and more competitive and it’s great to have a tight knit group to share experiences with.

MARK BINGEMAN | BINGEMANS

 

If you are looking to openly discuss business issues amongst your peers, I feel the Roundtable groups are an excellent forum for doing so.
