From Our Readers
“FFI Practitioner remains the gold standard of publications for professionals working with family business clients. The authors of the weekly editions are experts in their fields and the information is presented in a concise format, making their insights easily applicable in practice. This is a must read for anybody working with a family business!”
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.
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.
“I look forward to reading the latest edition of FFI Practitioner each week. As a recent GEN graduate, the materials help me to continue my ongoing education in the field and provide an abundance of practical insights that I can directly incorporate into my practice.”
As a child, I often asked my father the secret for his success as co-founder of the Sheraton Hotel chain. One answer was, “One good idea can change your life.” He was forever hunting for ideas to give him a leg up on his competition. For me, FFI Practitioner is the mother lode for ideas that can change your life. Reading it is a must.
In a world with increasing complexity, FFI Practitioner takes on an important intermediary role between theory and practice. I enjoy reading on relevant topics offering real insights from and for family business experts worldwide.
