Dr Eric Clinton, Director of DCU National Centre for Family Business, discusses why Irish family businesses must embrace Ownership, Family and the Board to achieve Successful Family Business Continuity.
Date: Tuesday 15th December 2020
Time: 12 noon to 1pm
Family businesses are the backbone of the Irish economy, with 64% of all businesses and 99.7% of farms being family-run affairs. The desire to pass the family business onto the next generation is one of the defining characteristics of the family business form. However, survival rates of family businesses are low, with only 30% reaching second generation and a mere 13% succeeding to the third generation.
Join Dr Eric Clinton for a free webinar which explores 3 areas of the family business that are integral to successful continuity – Ownership, Family & the Board.
This webinar will also provide an overview of the upcoming online executive education programme, Family Business Continuity – Sustaining the Family Business across Generations, that commences 18th January 2021. The programme, led by Dr Eric Clinton and a host of Irish and global family business experts, comprises three one-day modules delivered over the course of three consecutive weeks. Each module focuses on a different sphere of family business governance: Ownership, Family & Business.
There are a limited number of places left on the programme for interested family business teams. To find out more about the online executive education programme, please visit the Family Business Continuity webpage here.
