FAMILY BUSINESS LEADERS PROGRAM

Investing in your leaders makes good family business sense

A unique, world-leading, transformational program for leaders working within Family Businesses who are committed to developing their careers and helping the business thrive.

Who is it for?

The program is open to leaders at all levels (both family and non-family members) who are working their way up through the business.

Maximise your family business potential

You have the drive. You have the foundation. Now is the time to shine! This 4–month program brings together talented leaders who are committed to their own professional development as a cornerstone of furthering their career within the family business.

At the same time, your business will benefit from the additional skills, experiences, and tools that you will obtain to further drive the organisation, its management, the owners and ultimately the family to the next level of success.

 

An experience to make a difference

Through a combination of 3 x 2-day residential workshops, peer learning, and work-based projects, this community of learners will be challenged and supported to demonstrate their ability to make a significant contribution to their family business.

At the workshops, you will expand your professional network and be lead through thought-provoking sessions on leadership and strategic business planning by our team of experts.
