Family Business Masterclass Series

Aspire MasterClass explains how the Family Business Master Class Series can help position family businesses for the future.

Current and future family business leaders often view key aspects of the business, such as succession planning, governance and growth, in different ways. But successful family business leaders need to be aligned. That’s why we have created a five part Family Business Master Class Series aimed at family enterprises keen to plan and strategize for the future.

Family businesses consider more than revenue, profit and performance: they take into consideration about the identity of the family and its reputation, as well as their legacy going forward. Boardroom problems can surface round the living room or kitchen table which can lead to a heated debate. So it’s important to put strong governance frameworks in place for both the business and the family.

Aspire Masterclass offers a range of courses specifically designed for families in business. All courses have limited availability to ensure members receive maximum benefit from participation. We strongly recommend that attendees bring key members of their family and management team. Experience has taught us families in business who embrace courses collectively realize a greater benefit.

This is a 5 session Masterclass, each session is of 2 hrs. duration. Please find the topic for each session and what we shall cover is mentioned below:
