The Family Business Network is delighted to present the findings of the National Family Business Sentiment Survey 2020 which was conducted by the Family Business Network in association with Smith & Williamson. This is the first in a recurring survey which will track key trends and business sentiment in the family business sector to inform public policymaking. This edition of the Sentiment Survey takes place in the middle of the toughest challenge the country and its people have faced since independence, making the findings both insightful and timely.

The survey findings in this report confirm exactly how Irish family business owners feel, underlining their key concerns but also their commitment to keeping business going despite current challenges and fueling a jobs-led recovery. We hope that you find the results insightful and that you are inspired to support Ireland’s family businesses.
