NETWORKING FOR SUCCESS

Whilst every family business is different, they all face similar challenges. This is why connecting with other family businesses who have already faced, and overcome, the same challenges you are facing can be invaluable for the success of your business.

Running a business is both rewarding and challenging. It comes with the immense satisfaction of blazing your own trail and building something valuable on your own terms. At AFF, we can help you achieve your goals.

Lifetime to Legacy

Lifetime to Legacy is the published book authored by AFF Co-Founder Nike Anani. It is about how families can create enterprises of the future. In it, she explores how families can better connect, collaborate and have the clarity to encourage diversity of thought. She clarifies, simplifies and demystifies the world that is family business, particularly from an African perspective.

 

Lifetime to Legacy will provide immense value to:

 

- Business owners looking to transition;

 

- Next-generation members who are grappling with championing change; and

 

- Non-family staff and advisors seeking to make a greater impact.
