Welcome

EO-IMD_primary

Dear EO members,

I am proud to announce the launch of the inaugural EO Family Business course at the prestigious Institute for Management Development (IMD) in Lausanne, Switzerland.

EO at IMD: Navigating Your Family Business is a program designed for EO members who are involved in multi-generational family businesses or others considering passing on their business to the next generation.

Family businesses have unique challenges related to growth, succession planning, governance structure and culture. These are all encompassed with the emotional aspect of working with family whether it be a parent, sibling, child or even an extended family member.

The EO at IMD family business program will provide participants with a clear understanding of the challenges and how they can be addressed using a combination of classroom learning, group discussions, debates, guest speakers and live case studies including a visit to an area family business. Participants will be surrounded with opportunities to learn from each other and are encouraged to bring a guest to the program whether it be a family member or an executive on your team, though this is not mandatory.

EO is extremely fortunate to be partnering with IMD, a world reputed institution that is presently ranked number one in executive education by the Financial Times. For the last 25 years, IMD’s Global Family Business Centre has worked with leading international family businesses, helping them to navigate through successes and challenges from generation to generation.

IMD in Lausanne has one of the most picturesque campuses in the world set on the beautiful shores of Lake Geneva overlooking the picturesque Alps. EO is always looking out for once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for members. Consider  arriving early or staying later once the program is over to partake in some of the best skiing in the world.

I look forward to seeing you in Lausanne.

A bientot,
