What’s the most important thing a family business owner can pass on to his or her successor?
According to industry experts, a healthy bottom line is an excellent leave behind. A solid leadership team also will help smooth the transition. But neither is as critical to long-term success as an oft-overlooked hidden asset every successful family business must have: enduring values. Thanks to our three expert keynote speakers, you can anticipate an interactive, informative morning that will show you how family businesses can identify and utilize their core values to create measurable, sustainable competitive advantages that non-family firms cannot duplicate.
