People all around the world are choosing to build back better. Emerging leaders have an opportunity like never before to breathe new life into the business community and transform how we do things in a way that’s better for people and planet.
Family-owned businesses have always aligned strongly with a value set that prioritises people and community, and for this reason already have a head start! Leaders entering decision-making roles today are facing a world that now demands for-profit businesses to consider, measure and communicate the impact of their business on social, environmental, and financial objectives.
In this masterclass, the team from Hatched will bring their expertise to the table and engage leaders of tomorrow in the ideas, tools and strategies that will help them further their agenda to do business that’s good for world. They will draw on global benchmarks like the UN Sustainability Goals (SDG’s), BCorp Standards, best-practice Impact Measurement and purpose-driven impact strategy.
This masterclass will be your chance to align your strategic objectives with triple bottom line impact, refine your approach to decision-making that will allow you to adapt as the world changes, and be empowered to lead confidently in this new era of business.
Family businesses are as alike as chalk and cheese. Each one is distinctly different, just like its family members.
Each business has its own distinct personality, needs and dynamics, and those factors must be managed along with the family members as the business grows and passes from generation to generation.
As a family business expands from its entrepreneurial beginnings, it faces unique performance and governance challenges. The right family business advisor can play a pivotal role throughout the lifetime of a family business – becoming a trusted confidante.
In this Advisor Masterclass, John Broons, FBA Specialist Accredited Advisor, Forum Facilitator, and Fellow of the Family Firm Institute (FFI), who has over 40 years’ experience in advising families in business, will lead a team of facilitators to explore how you can better enable your family business clients to succeed.
With the support of an in-depth case study, John and the team will invite a debate on the role of family business advisors. The Masterclass will consider when, how and why to bring change into a family system as well as the difficult question of how not to do it.
Throughout the Masterclass you will be challenged to rethink your views on family business advising through the expertise of the facilitators and the sharing of experiences with your peers.
Do you want to engage and connect with your colleagues and clients in a more meaningful way?
Experience the power of storytelling to communicate business messages in this fun and highly interactive masterclass specifically designed for family businesses.
Over the last decade, business storytelling has emerged as a powerful communication skill and leadership competency. Embracing storytelling will help you to connect, engage and inspire.
During the Masterclass, you will develop your own story that you can use to communicate a business message or company values. You will gain valuable insights on what makes a story a story and how to avoid the most common mistakes when sharing stories in business.
Join Gabrielle Dolan, globally recognised thought leader on Storytelling, for this Family Business Masterclass as she challenges your fundamental assumptions around storytelling and communicating in business today. Gabrielle will provide you with the tools, perspectives and frameworks needed to successfully use stories in your family business now and into the future.
This Masterclass also includes a 90-Day follow up program consisting of a weekly email containing a short (1-2min) video to help you consolidate and integrate your learning.
Do you think your family members are effective team players?
In partnership with TRACTION and their experienced team of mentors, challenge your family members to this unique and dynamic team building experience as you work together to build a bike for a child in need.
Test your family dynamics and collaboration skills as you break down obstacles and communicate effectively to successfully build a bike. This team building exercise will also allow you to give back to the local community as you will donate your bike to a child who has faced hardship, with a personal message from you.
If you’re part of the next generation and are looking to take the reins in a leadership role, this workshop could be the perfect opportunity for you to shine. Or turn it into a family competition – the next generation vs incumbents – to see who comes out on top. After all, a friendly competition never hurt anyone before!
Get your family together for this team building workshop while also doing something positive for another family in the community.
As with most things in life, it often helps to be surrounded by a community of trusted friends and colleagues that can relate to your situation and offer advice, support and inspiration when you need it.
