Like in previous years, the 2018 Family Business Extension will bring together a panel of leading strategy scholars, prominent family business researchers interested in strategy’s applications to family firms, and practitioners who work in and with family businesses.

This year, the SMS Conference Extension will be held on the topic “Family Business – Balancing Globalization and Localization” at our EDHEC Business School Campus in Paris, the 26th of September. The conference will include keynotes, panel discussions & workshops headed by top family business experts from around the world, such as Morten Bennedsen, Isabelle Le Breton-Miller, Tom Lumpkin, and Alfredo de Massis.

The purpose of this year’s SMS Family Business Extension is to highlight diverse perspectives on globalization and localization to encourage debate across multiple disciplines to: (1) advance our understanding of family firms’ distinctive opportunities and challenges prompted by the duality between being deeply rooted in local communities, cultures, and networks while exploring new opportunities for their expansion and entrepreneurship in the global marketplace; and (2) develop insights that might help family business owners and managers, as well as policy makers and professionals engaged with family firms, to effectively manage the nexus between globalization and localization so as to build competitive advantages to sustain firm growth and performance over multiple generations.

Rania Labaki, director of the EDHEC Family Business Centre (EFBC), is one of the organizers of the SMS Conference Extension together with Kimberly Eddleston of North Carolina University and Torsten Pieper of Kennesaw State University. Professors Fabian Bernhard and Lorraine Uhlaner,  members of the EFBC, will serve as panelists  at the conference. Our keynote speaker will be Emmanuel VIELLARD, CEO of LISI Group and advisory board member of the EDHEC Family Business Centre.
