Don't Let the Next Big Crisis Jeopardize Your Family Business

Being prepared for whatever comes your way is the best way to protect what you’ve built


January 26  11 am - noon

In a business crisis, whether that be a global pandemic, a shift in the supply or demand market, or the incapacity or death of a key employee or owner, shareholders in a family business are not solely focused on maximizing shareholder value, like a public company might be. While dealing with family dynamics may feel like an extra layer of complexity during a trying time, a crisis could bring a family closer together by giving you a reason to put your differences aside and take actions that can allow the business to not only survive, but to thrive. It is the choices that your family makes or fails to make both before and during the crisis that will affect what kind of company, if any, emerges on the other side.
