Who we help Trade Associations
When family businesses succeed, industries thrive.Family businesses are the backbone of our industries, and trade associations are essential to their success. They help families see and plan for challenges coming around the corner. By partnering with us, they can also provide educational resources to help member companies master the particular challenges and opportunities in owning a family business.
Programs & Education
Understand the unique challenges that your family business members face.
Many trade organizations serve hundreds or thousands of family-owned businesses. These businesses share challenges with family businesses everywhere — how to balance complex family dynamics and critical business decisions. The impact of family on vision, goals, management structure, ownership, long-term planning and more can pose real risks to their sustainability, and offer significant competitive advantage.
Our team is experienced in delivering keynotes and workshops for association audiences that share the unique aspects of family business culture in a way that’s relevant to all attendees. This programming is often the start of a long-term effort to support family-owned businesses through the many stages of their development.
Our team has had the privilege of presenting for numerous trade and professional associations across North America.
