Unable to access FBA’s in-person Forum group program?

Live rurally, remotely or offshore and crave connection to like-minded peers? 

Time-starved Family Business leaders seeking personal and professional development?

FBA’s Virtual Forum has been created to support emerging and current Family Business leaders previously unable to gain access to our professionally facilitated Forum groups.

For over 25 years, FBA’s Forum Group Program has provided a platform to learn from peers and drive positive change across areas of concern.

  • Monthly meetings with leaders experienced with family business culture and mechanisms.
  • A safe space to share your ideas, talk through roadblocks, view your issues through a different lens and gain moral support.
  • Groups instil accountability and knowledge sharing with countless generations of experience distilled through the participants.
  • An opportunity to make lifelong connections, surrounding yourself with like-minded family business leaders to navigate simple issues through to the complexities of leadership, succession, emerging technologies, long work days, isolation, recent natural disasters, climate change, globalization and that’s the abbreviated list!
