Governing the Family Business – 29 September 2020

Sep 29


Successful and enduring family businesses underpin global economies, but they can also be fraught with tension. Families must navigate the transition between generations and the best means by which to balance their interests against the business. The unique dynamics of family-owned businesses combine issues facing every growing enterprise with the factors inevitably brought to the dining room table when they should remain in the office. Business sustainability and diversity play alongside growing generations, while the debates rage about who should be involved – and where, when and why.

Flourishing family entities anticipate their evolution and proactively separate and protect family and business roles. Knowing when to hold conversations about the future and the next generation is critical to creating a family business that both survives and thrives.

4 Key questions we will answer during the workshop:

  • Do you intend leaving a multi-generational business legacy and seek guidance on the next steps?
  • Do you fully understand the distinct roles of directing, shareholding and managing a family business and how the develop as the business grows?
  • Can you navigate the paradox between the roles family members play in the business and maximising growth opportunities independently of those same people and now seek information on how formalising the board can facilitate this?
  • Does your vision encompass a healthy family intertwined with a growing business empire and can you identify how to achieve that goal?

This intense one-day workshop promises to unravel the perspectives, conversations and pathways family businesses require to thrive and survive. Understand how well-designed governance and an effective board of directors will facilitate long-term profitability, value and sustainability.

P.S. Please feel free to share this workshop with anyone who you may feel would benefit from joining us.
