GOUVERNANCE DES ENTREPRISES FAMILIALES GOUVERNANCE DES ENTREPRISES FAMILIALES

Program trailer

Program overview

 

During times of crisis, family businesses demonstrate a higher resilience compared to other organizations and achieve better results. A strong entrepreneurial drive combined with prudent asset management contributes to their success. They face specific challenges, particularly in terms of governance and management, which are based on a foundation of values shared across generations. Millennials are now at the heart of this issue. Our objective is to equip participants with the best tools, enabling them to step back and address these crucial challenges. Shared family governance is essential to facilitate the transition between different generations of the owning family and the management team.
