We understand that managing the interests of multiple generations in a family business or family office is complex and requires specialist knowledge, which extends beyond the traditional advisor role.
Building strong and lasting relationships with our clients, based on mutual trust and respect, is how we like to work with our clients.
We believe in being true partners in the process of creating a path for your family business, whether it is supporting you with family governance or with recruitment.
Our team is a committed little family, here to work with and for your family in business for the long-term.
Creating a clear and transparent path for all individuals involved, be it family, management or other key stakeholders, is the first key step in any good process.
Without understanding where to start from and getting all stakeholders to agree on a future goal as well as the initial steps to take, the outcome will not be long-lasting or sustainable.
We specialise in creating clear and concise pathways with our clients that are easy to understand and follow.
Recruiting for key leadership roles for your family business requires a lot more attention to detail than just looking at past experience, strengths and weaknesses as well as general profiling.
People who succeed in senior roles in family business over the longer term have or develop, a deep understanding of family business complexities. They respect the owners and the business they have created and understand their role alongside next generation family members in the business.
That being the case, we assess candidates for their fit with the family, as well as their cultural fit with the business, in addition to their ability and motivation to perform the job itself.
Coming from a family business background and having worked with family businesses for more than 10 years, we understand the importance of balancing the role the family plays with that of the business.
The most common challenge is to recognise that decisions, which may be good for the business, might not be good for the family and vice versa.
We are experienced in helping manage the conversations that are necessary to align family members to make good decisions for the future of the family and the business, including the future of their staff and communities.
At LiquidGold Consultants, our passion is to make a positive difference to our family business clients. With our family business knowledge and our deep commitment to client care, you are in good hands.
