Family Governance Program

It definitely was an eye opener

This conference was a truly one in the face of global depression and local competition. It definitely was an eye opener, thought provocative session, knowledgable and inspiring session. Family governance is critical: separating the family wants from the business needs, succession planning is crucial to ensure continuity and generations. Lecturers are well informed and knowledge=able on the topics and were very effective. I would recommend this conference to my colleges and other family members to ensure a thorough understanding of the difference between a family council, management, board of directors and their functions.

Cisley Gabriel - Grenada The Country Cold Store Ltd.
Very informative and enlightening

This seminar was very informative and enlightening particularly regarding the transfer of succession oriented to continuity & success, and also the importance of implementing an appropriate core private structure.

Dunstan DuBoulay - Saint Lucia DuBoulay Bottling
The training was an eye opener

The training was an eye opener. If you are in a family business and needs guidance of a few things that should be put in place for your company, especially guidance on the structure. Then this may help you with where to begin. You will be asked the question, how can we separate “family” and “the best interests of the business in long term, especially when there are conflicts”.

Lorna Christopher - Tortola, BVI Maria’s by the Sea
This conference is packed with valuable and critical information

This conference is packed with valuable and critical information for the success of family business and too ensure that family business continues to the 3rd generation and beyond. I was insured to ensure that our family business has a clear and distinctive line between governance for the family and governance of the (family) business.
