The Family Business Conference 2021

For 23 years, Family Business Australia and New Zealand have been the Asia Pacific leaders in supporting family businesses, regardless of industry or age. We believe that creating a positive and open platform of education, support and connection creates access to a depth of knowledge and learning that would be impossible to attain elsewhere. You have the opportunity to talk to, learn from and build rapport with everyone from CEOs to next gens, from manufacturing specialists to retail specialists, from heritage businesses to start-ups. It’s a melting pot of experience and wisdom that enables you to consolidate your skills and those of your family members and employees.

This is your conference and we can’t wait to welcome you back. It’s time.
