Melissa Brenton, Don Brenton Fire Protection
“I think people would get the most out of Family Business Atlantic by joining a peer to peer group”
Fraser Moir, Halifax Seed
“It's a really great environment to bounce different ideas, problems of other people. The objective isn't to give advice so much but perhaps to gain perspective and guidance from other people, as to how well they might handle a certain situation.”
Chris Rideout, Rideout Tool and Machine
“People go to peer to peer groups, I think for different reasons sometimes. For me its that ability to express myself without being judged”
Melissa Brenton, Don Brenton Fire Protection
“I look to my peer to peer groups as trusted advisors. I go to them for advice on both issues that I have in my personal life and in/ or business”
Emily Tregunno, Halifax Seed
“When you get to leave a peer to peer group, I feel like I’m where I need to be when it comes to family business. I feel more relaxed, I feel like I am supported, I feel like whatever stress I had during the run of the day. It kinda makes me feel centered again”
Emily Tregunno, Halifax Seed
“Every family business has very unique challenges but yet they are all the same, so its really a support system of people that know what you’re going through”
Fiona Diamond, Brookes Diamond Productions
I am so inspired and motivated by this group of individuals who come from widely different business backgrounds and life experiences. We share so much in common and support each other in so many ways.
Mary-Ellen O’Regan, O’Regans Automotive Group
As a member of a Peer to Peer group we talk about business issues that are unique to family-run enterprise. Yes, it is an investment of time, but it is one that has become invaluable to me.
Gina McFetridge, CAIB, Archway Insurance
The support and advice both given and received by family businesses involved in Family Business Atlantic is invaluable. Family business supporting the growth and development of family business.
