Keynote Speaker

Dr. Dennis T. JaffeBuilding a Next Generation Family Team
Dr. Dennis Jaffe

After a family enterprise is successful, the challenge for the founders, and members of the next generation, is to prepare and create a team of family members who are ready, willing and able to continue the business. The responsibility of this team involves not just continuing but expanding the business in new generations, diversifying into other areas, and sustaining alignment and harmony in a growing family. Quite a challenge, and one that is quite different from that faced by the founding generation!
