"Just a note to say how much I enjoyed your presentation at the meeting in Edinburgh last Thursday. You were so enthusiastic and motivational and obviously taking over the family business came with its challenges but you seem to have overcome these and are head of a very successful company.
Thank you for taking the time out of what appears to be a very busy life to put together such a wonderful presentation. You were inspirational and clearly manage to balance your work and home lives very well as well as running a great business.
Its great to hear that ken and the other SFBA people were important in helping you to overcome the obstacles you faced when you took over the business and we look forward to creating our own story which I hope in a few years time I get the chance to stand where you were to tell other Scottish family businesses how we succeeded and moved out family business to the next level"
