Glossop Cartons’ joint managing director, Jacky Sidebottom-Every, was recently invited to Insider’s round table event where like-minded business owners discussed company growth and the challenges often surrounding owner-managed businesses (OMBs).
The group of 13, including founders, directors and partners from a range of industry backgrounds, addressed growing a business and the barriers which sit alongside them, such as attracting new talent, investment and strategy.
A key theme throughout the discussion highlighted the importance of networking, nurturing skills and talent and establishing the right connections to grow your senior leadership team and push your business forward on its journey.
Speaking of the Insider’s round table, joint managing director Jacky Sidebottom-Every, commented: “It’s always a great opportunity for Glossop Cartons to be involved in these types of networking events, discussing opportunities and challenges surrounding OMBs and how we can overcome barriers to drive our businesses forward.
“Glossop Cartons has been established for 37 years and started as a family business when I was just 19 years old. We’ve come to the point where we need to bring more experience on the board. The problem is with family businesses, are that they are your “baby” and you have to learn to let go. It was a great opportunity to discuss with others in a similar position about building a management board to take your organisation to the next level.”
Jacky is also on the board of the British Printing Industries Federation and has launched an educational partnership with local schools to support the BPIF’s goal of promoting careers in the sector. Attracting new skilled talent to the industry will help to address such barriers discussed at the round table event. You can read all about the initiative here
