Peer groups

Family business peer groups meet to discuss family business subjects of mutual interest. Moderated by professional facilitators from the center, these confidential forums provide a committed group of peers with the goal of shared growth as owners. Groups are made of 8-10 individuals and meet 6 times per year; family members and competitors are never placed in the same group.
