Family Forum Program

Accelerate: Building Momentum in Family GovernanceIMG_3125-cropped

As families change by welcoming new members and new generations, active communication and participation are essential to building family cohesion. An effective family governance process can provide the essential forum and foundation for constructive discussion and problem solving that places the culture, values and goals of the family on the same plane as that of the business. Over the course of this program, attendees will gain new insights on developing their family governance system, learn from successes and struggles of other families, and integrate their learnings into a work plan based on their individual goals for governance with action steps to put into place in the year to come.

"This program provided excellent exposure to a wide range of topics, experiences and creativity in dealing with family business challenges. I'm energized to engage in our family issues. The speakers did a great job and there was a lot of open sharing among families."
Trevor Duininck,
