FAMILY BUSINESS COURSES & PROGRAMS

African Family Firms helps to professionalise family firms through personal, professional and community development.

AFF offers a range of courses specifically designed for families in business. AFF courses are the only ones in Africa that specifically address the challenges of family business in relation to the country they are in and the unique nature of the communities and cultures we serve. All courses have limited availability to ensure members receive maximum benefit from participation. We strongly recommend that attendees bring key members of their family and management team. Experience has taught us families in business who embrace courses collectively realise a greater benefit.
