Show Notes

On this episode of The Family Business Voice, John Barrow from the Barrow Group talks to Ramia about the politics of business in SA and the risk of growing too large too quickly.

– John’s siblings and cousins work in flattened structure to ensure equality

– Remarkably, there has been almost no conflict in the family business despite five members of the same generation working closely together.

– Growing the business isn’t John’s main concern. Rather, it’s growing something worthwhile; growing too large too quickly can be dangerous.
