    Successful Transitions in a Family Business

    Successful Transitions in a Family Business

    On this episode I am joined by Dr. Jim Grubman who is an internationally recognised consultant, speaker, and educator in the multidisciplinary field of family wealth psychology. He works with affluent families and their advisors to understand how wealth and life can be integrated successfully.


    On this episode we cover many different topics. We look at how different generations have reacted to recent events and experiences.


    We explore the role of governance and discuss what 'good governance' looks like and what it does for families in business.


    We explore the 'resilience' and what that really means during this current crisis.


    Many families are finding out what areas they have done well in and where they need to learn when it comes to both governance and succession (or transition) planning.


    We also look at the important role that advisers play in working with families during these transitions and the elements that make up the 'Generative Alliance' that can help family businesses to thrive.

    Reasons to be Hopeful

    Reasons to be Hopeful

    We are living in unprecedented times where we are fearful for our families health, that of our own and the prospects for our businesses. It can be easy to become overwhelmed by the situation and so I offer some reasons to be hopeful in this episode.


    Many of the businesses that I am speaking to now are aware of and accessing the support available to them from Government and so are now finding that they have started to look at what they need to do within their businesses and within the environment they find themselves in now.


    In this episode I discuss some of the reasons that I am hopeful and optimistic and share some tips on how to spend any additional time that you may have as a result of the Government guidance to stay home and save lives.
