Saturday 6th October 2012

This exclusive full day Next Generation programme will consider how NxG members can become ready to lead their family business through a rapidly changing landscape.

The Vision

The Next Generation Day at the 23rd FBN International Summit will cast its eyes into the future. The programme will present a picture of the world twenty years from now – from work to leisure, from the economy to the environment. NxG members will consider how to best equip themselves to lead their family business successfully through this rapidly changing landscape.

Building on the FBN Sustainability pledge, the FBN Summit Next Generation Day will focus on the role that young leaders will play in driving the future success and legacy of their family business. The extraordinary family business of the future will be one that leads with a long- term, sustainable approach across multiple dimensions, delivering well beyond financial results.
