Successful Family Governance: How to Achieve Consensus Among Family Members and Implement Lasting, Binding Structures
During IFG's Afternoon Presentation, Ivan Lansberg will share some of his vast insight in consulting large, multi-generational families. To achieve successful family governance, a two-step process is required. First, an alignment of values and goals within the family needs to be discussed and agreed upon. Second, a process needs to be designed that allows such values to prevail. This includes the drafting and implementation of binding, legal structures. At IFG, Ivan will discuss both phases of this two-step process.
