OUR MANDATE

Giving Family Businesses critical Advice, Tools and Resources for

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity during and after the COVID-19 pandemic!

Re-Inventing and Re-booting Family Business.

#1 online family business conference

On Friday 27th March 2020, our co-founders and hosts Tsitsi Mutendi and Nike Anani were inspired to provide an online meeting place where Family Businesses could come together and learn from the best minds. Over 21 days we aim to bring the world's foremost leaders and experts in one place to share with Family Businesses in 1 continuous 21-day online conference.

 

Inspired by Vid-19 Conference. We realised that with the increasing number of shutdowns happening globally and many people working from home, isolated thanks to COVID-19, this conference is a place where Family Business owners, Leaders, enthusiasts and supporters can engage with leaders and experts around the world during this challenging time.

 

Think of this as your Disaster Recovery Plan and your Business Continuity Plan all in one place. But with a rock start line up of leaders and experts from across the globe.

The scope of speakers is not only focused on your Family Business operations but also on the critical Mental Health issues that have affected all of us during this difficult time. Consider this the Must Attend event for your Family Business in 2020.
