About Anita

I have over 15 years working as a specialist family business advisor and consultant. That means I understand (and can resolve) problems such as succession planning, conflict between family members, tension between the older and young generation, communication issues and many other challenges that prevent the business from moving forward.

With an international background in marketing and communications, I always have one eye on the success of the business itself, whilst unravelling and overcoming the family issues which could be holding back its growth.

I'd like to think I am warm and approachable working with people of all ages, positions and backgrounds. I am straight talking, get things done and work side-by-side with clients as a guide and mentor.

I hold an Advance Certificate in Family Business Advising and Family Wealth Advising from The Family Firm Institute Bostson, as well as certificates in mediation, anger management and NLP.
I have been a guest lecturer at Oxford University and Henley Business School

I became Chairman of Family Business Place in 2018 after handing over the reigns to my daughter Amalia, who now looks after our National and International Membership community. This allows me to focus solely on being a close trusted advisor to the families who desperately need my help.

As a specialist Family Business Advisor I have a rare and unique set of skills and experience to help families with:
- Discovery Workshops
- Succession Planning
- Exit Planning
- Governance
- Mentorship
- Family Impact and Philanthropy
- Next Generation Development
