Are You Implementing the Best Strategies?

Tuesday, April 23, 2019
7:30-9:00 a.m.
SVSU Curtiss Hall
Banquet Rooms A and B


Keynote Address: Carol Wittmeyer, Ed.D.
Cornell University Smith Family Business Center and St. John Fisher College

Most family businesses leaders aspire to a long-lasting legacy. What does that legacy look like? How do you achieve this legacy? Are the Next Gens in your family business supporting it? How do you know everyone’s on the right track?

These issues will be examined during Carol Wittmeyer’s keynote for the Stevens Center for Family Business on April 23. During an interactive “right brain” exercise, Carol will help participants “picture their legacy” and identify the components and paths to achieving it.

Additionally, drawing on her own recent national research, Carol will focus on the importance of crafting individual leadership development plans for the Next Generation, focusing on the question. . . 

Should your family business’s next generation leadership training require outside experience or is starting at the ground level and working up within the business more effective?
