Global Symposium for Family Businesses

Thursday 19 November 2020 


The Family Business Network invites you to join our online symposium as we unite a community of family businesses from across the world, engaging in peer to peer learning and the opportunity for sector specialists to transfer their own knowledge to new groups.

The key goals of the symposium are to share cultural differences to managing succession, next generation education and transferable skills through to the management of governance and values.

We will be delivering a blend of live and pre-recorded interviews, film pieces, panels and insight sessions over a 24 hour period to a global audience of family businesses and those that support the sector.

Content will be available to download on the day and for a time limited period after the event.
