Kin in the Game – WORKSHOP – Mulwala
In every family business, there exists an inherent tension between, on the one hand, the traditional family values of egalitarianism and nurture, necessary for a family to remain cohesive, and on the other, the “survival of the fittest” mentality necessary for a business to successfully compete.
Time: 12 pm to 2.30 pm
Light lunch will be provided
Date: Wednesday, 30th May 2018
Venue: Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort
Martin Tobin has grappled with this tension more than most, having joined his family’s highly respected business, Tobin Brothers Funerals, under a structured succession plan, before progressing to the role of Managing Director, and ultimately experiencing a sudden and messy departure 18 years later.
Martin’s journey ultimately saw him reinvent himself as a specialist family business consultant, where he now advises and supports other businesses with “kin in the game.” Martin’s presentation chronicles the highs and lows and learnings of his own family business journey and explores a range of approaches to family businesses around the world are adopting to remain successful and cohesive, including:
- Embarking on a structured succession planning process
- Adopting a Family Business Charter (or Constitution)
- Establishing a Family Council
- Seeking independent advice/support at Board level
- Formulating a Next Generation Orientation & Development program
