The Family Leadership Forum

Develop your executive leadership skills with family business peers

Building on decades of success with peer groups, we have developed one of the most innovative peer group experiences yet. Through an effective balance of education, lived experiences and facilitated discussions, participation in our Family Leadership Forum will help you build a strong legacy in your family enterprise.

Leading your family enterprise can be purposeful and rewarding. It can also weigh on you – with the constant and sometimes conflicting responsibilities over team results, business prosperity, family happiness and your own personal well-being.

As a leader in your family enterprise, you need a confidential space where you can work through these important decisions, making impactful change while balancing all of these goals. That place is in our Family Leadership Forum.
