Beyond Three Generations: How to Get There & Move Forward
Families put energy, time and resources into their businesses to make them successful for their members, employees, clients, and the overall community. But sometimes, in spite of all these efforts, there is a worry that the oft-heard myth that very few family firms survive from one generation to another, and that only 3% will get to the third generation, may come true.
How do we challenge these unfavourable odds, and make all the exertion worthy?
By attending this workshop, participants will learn about the most common risks affecting family businesses, and what kind of “antibodies” both the business and the family need in order to survive and prosper over generations; and how they can develop them.
