A Decade of Decisions - Part II - 20 November 2017


Monday, November 20, 2017 - 8:15am

“A Decade of Decisions” is a dynamic program to accelerate your thinking about the future planning for business and family success.  Presented by Key Capital Private and Family Office Exchange

Business and Wealth owning families will face very important decisions in the next decade, as family and business leadership has to deal with the complexity of changing world economies, challenging innovations in technology, lower investment returns, and the desire of many leaders to step down from active management as they reach the next chapter. 

This special event will provide an opportunity to hear about what makes a family enterprise successful (including several case studies highlighting what successful families have learned along this journey), building the entrepreneurial mindset in the family, educating the next generation, getting the right Governance structure, and developing the appropriate investment strategies.
