TRSA Young Executives Program: Family Business Success Factors and Paradoxes Workshop
Presenters:  Amy M. Schuman, Senior Advisor and Nicole Bettinger, Consultant, The Family Business Consulting Group

A family business, by its very nature, is a contradiction. Successful, multi-generation family businesses have figured out how to manage these contradictions and in many cases turn them into a secret of their success. Identify best practices by participating in an interactive case study advising a company regarding how to handle typical family business challenges. Attendees also receive a copy of Amy’s book Family Business as Paradox which provides the common language, framework, tools and processes needed to learn to embrace, manage and, in some cases, synthesize contradictions in a family business.

Amy is an Adjunct Lecturer at the Center for Family Enterprise, Kellogg School of Business at Northwestern University.
