We live in a world of constant uncertainty, disruption, and rapid change. The past decade has been challenging for many industries, which have struggled in the face of disruptive technologies and new, large players from emerging economies. Family businesses are no exception, and must also navigate these new territories along with managing their traditional and distinct culture. The London Business School’s “Family Business Club Conference 2017: Bridging the Gap” will discuss key issues facing family businesses within the lens of the future of the global economy.
Two major themes will be explored through a series of keynote speeches and panels. Succession, and maintaining talent will be discussed, focusing on the relationship between professional management and family and conflict during succession. Diversification strategies will also be explored, with insights shared on investing in in unconventional ways and interacting with investors.
The London Business School Family Business Conference 2017 will be held under Chatham House rules.
