Annual Symposium

14th Annual Parker Center for Family Business Symposium

Friday, November 13, 2020 9 a.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Keynote Address by Kathy Wiseman:

Is it possible? Can we really learn from the mistakes we make in our family business? Our speaker for the 2020 symposium, Kathy Wiseman, thinks so. Her presentation will build on the foundation of her June ’19 talk in which attendees reported leaving with “new ways of thinking and fresh ideas.” Kathy will highlight the mistakes and lessons learned from her thirty years of working with family businesses, family foundations and families of wealth. She will present a unique approach to thinking about the meaning of “wealth” particularly applicable to New Mexico family businesses. Treat yourself to a thoughtful and problem-solving forum that may shift how you approach managing assets (your business, your succession, your wealth, your foundation ) AND your family relationships, both for successful outcomes.

Lunch: A gift card to Flying Star will be emailed to you for your use to purchase lunch or use another time.
