 This panel discussion will feature four next-generation leaders, each with very diverse backgrounds and experience. Two panelists are G2, and two are G3, but all are family business successors. Together we will be exploring governance, primarily governance in the family circle and the business circle. Consequently, we will be talking about the Family Council’s roles, Advisory Boards, and Boards of Directors. Each of our panelists has done some creative things regarding governance, and I know we can all learn from their experiences.
