Family Enterprises – Engaging Generations for the Long Term

Helping you understand and overcome the challenges of your family enterprise

Upcoming Sessions

Addressing family firms' unique challenges

INSEAD  has developed a three and a half day programme for family businesses. The goal of this programme is to understand the specificities of Family Enterprises and to review useful practices and tools in order to foster their sustainability and their economic and societal contribution.

Designed for a small group of a few business families, the programme is highly interactive and provides a confidential environment and a safe place for exchanges. It includes case studies, presentations, exchanges between families and within each family. 

A private optional coaching session can take place after the programme for families who wish to continue their reflection.
