Family Enterprise Day - Learning from Tradition to Build the Future with the Hénokiens

Fontainebleau

Overview

Representing family enterprises and bicentenary family firms, members of the Hénokiens Association have demonstrated extraordinary longevity in the face of constantly changing economic landscape and shifts in business environment. How do these family firms build the architecture for long-term success? What are the steps and strategies in engaging the Next-Gen to perpetuate the family firm legacy while rejuvenating the business to meet the evolving market demands?

To understand the key factors that contribute to the enduring growth, prosperity and resilience across different generations of family enterprises, the INSEAD Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise in collaboration with the Hénokiens Association, is jointly hosting the Family Enterprise Day focused on the theme "Learning from Tradition to Build the Future with the Hénokiens".

  • Parallel workshops engaging “now” and “next” generation family members to interact with their peers and exchange insights on the role of next-gen in balancing the legacy and rejuvenation of the family firm.

 

On the eve of Family Enterprise Day, Friday, 2 June 2023 evening, the Hénokiens Association, together with the INSEAD Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise, is hosting an informal gathering for the next-generation of family businesses to facilitate networking and exchange with peers including INSEAD MBA students who are taking the Family Business elective.
