Meet the Family Leadership Forum Moderators

Fully facilitated and focused on achieving your goals

Family Leadership Forums are fully facilitated peer groups to help ensure you get exactly what you need from the experience. Moderated by instructors from our Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA)  program, your Forum will focus on achieving the goals of each participant through open, respectful and insightful sharing, guest speakers, and a Program Plan developed specifically for you and your peers.

[These forums] provide a unique opportunity for individuals in a confidential setting to explore tactical and operational issues, day-to-day challenges … as well as longer term strategy issues.
