Family Business Advisor Program

Over the past number of years I have had the privilege of working with Mike McGrann in the support of and nurturing of Families in Business.

Mike is the Executive Director of The S. Dale High Center for Family Business, a seasoned advisor to business families and I am privileged to call him a friend.


It is also my delight to inform you of a program Mike and I will be presenting that is designed specifically for individuals who serve as advisors to Family Businesses.

The Family Business Advisor Program.

This exciting program will be conducted at The S. Dale High Center for Family Business at Elizabethtown College and take place over two days, June 6 and June 13.

If you are an advisor to Business Families, I would encourage you to attend. If you are a family in business, I would encourage you to pass this information to your advisors. The information in this program will increase their effectiveness in the services they provide.

Below are the details of the program.

If you have any questions, please let me know. This is an exciting opportunity to support those that support Family Businesses.

Family businesses are complicated. The normal challenges of advising businesses are tough enough, but providing professional advice to a family business involves additional dynamics that can impact their competitiveness as well as your effectiveness as a family business advisor.

Besides serving as advisors to family businesses for decades, experts at the S. Dale High Center for Family Business are now offering a program to help professionals who work with family businesses to help you be more effective in as an advisor to family enterprises.

As a trusted advisor to Family Businesses you’ve probably experienced the complexities we’re talking about. We’ve been working with Family Businesses exclusively for more than 20 years and have insight and experience into their unique challenges and capabilities that we want to share with you.

This intensive two-day workshop is a truly unique professional development opportunity offering information, education, case studies, role playing, and other dynamic experiences for professionals serving family businesses.

The Family Business Advisor Program, designed expressly for you, will help you:

Develop a deep understanding of the complexities of family enterprises and how a company’s “Familiness” can be a competitive advantage.

Apply a new set of tools for effective management of the interactions between the family and the business.

Strengthen your relationships with your family business clients – becoming a trusted advisor for both the senior and successor generations of family business owners.

As an attendee, you will bring a real-life case study to the workshop and obtain expert feedback from our instructors and your peers. In addition, you’ll receive individual feedback and follow-up with our highly-skilled facilitators after the event, so you can further increase your expertise with your family business clients.
