UW Family Business Center Program #1: Transitions of a Family Business: Parent to Sibling to Cousin

Tuesday, September 13, 2011 8:30 am — 11:30 am
Fluno Center
601 University Ave
Madison, WI 53715

Presented by Drew Mendoza, Family Business Consulting Group

The transition of a family firm to siblings and ultimately to cousins are two very different stages. Sibling ownership and management teams face an entirely different set of challenges in setting strategy and governing themselves than the hurdles that will face their children, nieces, and nephews. The content of this program will identify and address:

* The common qualities we see time and again in successful multi-generational enterprising families

* The requisite skills for a family shareholder, regardless of whether a family shareholder works in the business.

* The critical factors needed to make it to and through the sibling stage of an enterprise.

* The transition issues you can expect as you plan for and execute a transition to cousins.

Cost: Free for prospective/current UW Family Business Center Members, otherwise $200 per company.
