News & Announcements
The 2018 Conference Program Committee is pleased to announce a wide-variety of educational sessions for this year’s conference in London.
We are pleased to announce that the award for the Best Article published in FBR in 2017 has been given to Daniel Holt and Kristen Madison from Mississippi State University and Franz Kellermanns from University of North Carolina at Charlotte, for their article “Variance in Family Members’ Assessments: The importance of dispersion modeling in family firm research.”
What better way to start a new year than to look at some classic models in the family enterprise field and offer forward facing ideas. Thanks to FFI Fellow Paul Karofsky of Transition Consulting Group for refining some of his early work on a multi-roles model and providing examples from his client base for consideration by the readers of FFI Practitioner.
For this week’s FFI Practitioner, we are excited to share an interview with Kirsten Taylor-Martin about a major piece of research recently conducted by Grant Thornton. The interview, which includes useful tips and insights for advisers working with next gen family members, was actually conducted by a next gen member of Kirsten’s family - her daughter, Angelina Martin!
Thanks to Thomas Schwarz of the FBR Research Applied Board for his thoughtful précis of “Unpacking the Black Box of Family Business Advising: Insights From Psychology” – an article that appears in the March 2018 issue of FBR.
From Our Readers
As a recent graduate of the FFI GEN program, I consider FFI Practitioner a must read for my ongoing professional education. The weekly editions represent the latest insights from experts representing a variety of disciplines and cultures -- insights that I can readily integrate into my practice.
For me, FFI Practitioner is the benchmark for best practices in the field of family business. The publication inspires me to better address the needs of each of my family clients, with new ideas and practices, but above all from a proactive and comprehensive perspective.
