Families in Business

Sustainable from generation to generation

The ‘Families in Business’ programme supports entrepreneurial families with large and medium-sized businesses in developing long-term success and a successful succession from generation to generation.

The success of the family business depends strongly on the commitment and agreements made by the family and shareholders. Success through several generations requires a coordinated, patient and conscious approach of active and inactive family members, and possibly non-family shareholders and management.

The participants in this residential programme come from a variety of families and represent multiple generations of both active and non-active members of the family business. They discuss best practices with experts, share challenges and experiences, and have the opportunity to work on their own, sometimes delicate, issues, with experienced guidance, in full confidentiality.

This programme focuses on the crucial governance, managerial and relational aspects that confront entrepreneurial families: transfer of shareholdership, follow-up in the company, relationship between active and non-active family members, working with external management, good governance, entrepreneurship and decision-making. And above all, the willingness to communicate, make agreements, and clarify roles.
