Family Business Breakfast Series

Utilizing Family Members Not Employed in the Business

Not every family member chooses to be active in the family business, yet they often bring diverse education and experiences that can lead to new ideas and a fresh perspective. These family members can engage through formal means, with a role on a board or family council, or in more informal ways, by providing relevant outside experience or building family and human capital. At this event, panelists with very diverse roles will share how they’re helping move their family businesses forward, while not on the payroll. Attendees will learn how to tap into family members who aren’t part of the business, understand structures that can capitalize on their outside strengths, and learn how to move the family business forward in new ways, through these family members.
