To build a successful multi-generational family business or family office is to beat the odds; few businesses survive in family hands to the second generation and of these, under one-in-ten reach the third generation.
The Family Business Forum is designed exclusively for family members with major family firms or family offices. At it, you will discover the solutions to your unresolved issues, by hearing from and working with business families from every continent.
What makes the Forum different is its emphasis on live family cases in table-sized groups. Firstly, you hear from a family about a real-life challenge they faced; next, in groups, you discuss what you might have done in their place; finally, you learn directly from the family about what they actually did.
World-class family business teachers, writers and consultants help facilitate discussions, draw broader lessons and contribute their own presentations.
The One-Day Family Business Forum
This intensive, dynamic and highly-enjoyable conference is led by top family business expert Peter Leach of Imperial College London. It is built around two in-depth, live cases during which two families agree to share their hard?earned experience in live family cases.
The final part of the day is devoted exclusively to a peer-to-peer advice workshop, which is the opportunity for you to seek advice on whatever questions are on your mind, by drawing upon the hard-earned experience of the other families, together with practical advice from the facilitator.
Maintaining Family-to-Family connections
After the Forum, families are encouraged to stay in contact to share experiences and so make their different family business journeys all the easier.
