Next Generation Workshop


A one-of-a-kind Next Generation Workshop will take place on Wednesday 6th November

If you are the next generation to join the ‘family business’ or the next generation ‘thinking about joining the family business’ then this ‘un-workshop’ workshop  is for you.

The theme: The Futures’s here….it’s time to talk!

This is your chance to discuss ‘communication’ within family businesses.  You will explore with your ‘peers’ how to tackle the challenges of ‘talking business’, ‘talking change’, ‘talking innovation’, ‘talking leadership’ and what gets in the way of productive conversations.

Working in small peer groups, you may find that your peers can shed light on some of these challenges.

This workshop is available to next or new generations working within family businesses and to those thinking about it.
