"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary." - Cecil Beaton
Learning will be about innovative ways to creatively think and gain wisdom…not memorizing data and processes. Whether in the Member Forums or the Family-Business Forums and Summits, learning will be experiential in nature and rely heavily on community learning experiences rather than long-winded lectures.
11-times per year, members and parents will have separate coaching calls with the Forum dean. These regular calls will provide support, insights, breakthroughs and continuity for the journey through the program. In addition to the calls, members and parents will have access to the dean, Professional Advisory Board members, SMEs, and speakers through the Forum’s social media system.
Three-times a year, the dean will gather with the member, parents, family business leaders, and the family office and foundation executives (if applicable). This provides an opportunity to review the past 4-months, look ahead to the next trimester and seize opportunities that have been identified to benefit the family and/or the business.
Twice a year, all the Forums in a geographical area will gather for a day-long, Family-Business Forum. These will be dynamic, innovative learning experiences perhaps unlike anything you have ever attended. Besides members and parents...other siblings, business leaders, family office and foundation executives are all invited to attend. Once a year in October, a national Family-Business Summit will bring together Forum members, siblings, parents and family business leaders from across the nation.
This will provide a unique opportunity to unwind and focus on one topic of special interest. Attendees will be determined based on the topic and can either be: just parents, just siblings, just business owners and/or business leaders, the entire family, or other types of configurations. The Weekend Retreat will be three-days at a resort setting in which 6 to 12 families or family business leaders will come together to have a little fun, network and to make great strides in accomplishing a specific family or business objective.
