Storytelling is one of the greatest ways for humans to experience connection, and in family business, no two stories are the same, making family legacies unique and captivating.
Kerry Heysen and Scott Hicks are no strangers to storytelling and working collaboratively in a family business. The power film couple have been behind acclaimed South Australian films, including Shine, Highly Strung and The Boys Are Back. Together, their extensive works include the feature films Fallen, The Lucky One, Glass: A Portrait of Philip in 12 Parts, No Reservations, Heart in Atlantis and Snow Falling on Cedars. Today the Hicks Heysen partnership has extended to producing grapes from their Yacca Paddock Vineyard on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula.
From the outset, Hicks and Heysen worked together intimately, sharing each other’s visions and practical realities, with many discussions about their work held around the kitchen table at night with their two sons, Scotty, and Jett.
Scott, Kerry, Scotty and Jett will take us through the power of storytelling to not only inspire in life and business but to remind us that we are all connected to something greater than ourselves.
This session will explore how sharing stories in a family business can unite a family and their company and capture a lasting legacy that can be passed down and celebrated by future generations.
