Numerous are the challenges that multigenerational business families face today :
► Balancing globalization and localization in an era of digitalization and increasing competition;
► Keeping the family members in alignment with the family business vision despite the mutations in family structures around the world;
► Sustaining the long-term orientation to create value for all stakeholders including the communities around
How to deal with these challenges at the intersection of the family, the business and the communities systems? Building a strong family legacy is one of the keys. Standing as a partnership between the EDHEC Family Business Centre and Tharawat Family Business Forum, with the support of the Louvre Endowment Fund, the conference “Building a Legacy for the Future : Towards Family Business Longevity” will take up the challenge to tackle this question from the angle of the family legacy in the eyes of two family business members of the 5th generations coming from two different parts of the world and an expert in philanthropy as a core component of legacy.
