This webinar, as a part of Hult’s Thought Leadership Webinar series reflects issues that matter to global business, the community and you. Professor Bill Carroll presents his topic:

Saga of Family Business: How to survive the perilous journey of the 7 C's

Complexity scientists are tracking the accelerating pace of change, and the abbreviating effect it is having on the ‘shelf life’ of all businesses today.

If we are to prolong the vitality of the family business — the predominant form of commercial life as well as the principal generator of jobs worldwide — we must examine each key point in the evolution of a family business. Likened in this instance to a sailing journey across the "7Cs", Prof. Carroll offers ideas for navigating the predictable perils of each key passage.

Attendees will briefly experience the entire 'journey' of family business: creation, development, maturation -- and the demise-quickening forces they must learn to overcome -- if their own family business is to continue.

And being the overarching goal that is central to every family business, this webinar is duly entitled "To Be Continued".

In order for attendees' family businesses "To Be Continued" they must especially understand and emulate the phenomenon of Founder-led creation, and the increasing importance of 'Re-founder'-spurred regeneration.
