Family firms comprise 80% of the world’s businesses. In the U.S., they account for more than three quarters of new job creation and half of the nation’s gross domestic product; and they represent the majority of America’s wealth. But only 30% survive into the second generation.
Join Catalyst magazine and Arnall Golden Gregory for the annual Family Business Summit as our panelists share their first-hand experiences with the challenges and benefits of business relationships between a parent and child, husband and wife and siblings.
Key topics will include:
Smart practices for hiring family and non-family employees
Creating a fair and motivating environment for family and non-family employees
Developing an effective board of directors
Creating a smooth leadership transition
