About Our Events

FBN International Summit

Every year we organise a high-profile International Summit for business-owning families. This provides outstanding opportunities to learn from each other about family business cultures and best practices from around the world.

Questions that we deal with include:

  • How do we combine the best of the old and new ways of running a business?
  • How do we keep the business looking forward?
  • How do we prepare younger family members to take over our business?

FBN Next Generation International Events

Each year we offer Next Generation members the opportunity to network around the world, listen to inspirational family leaders and learn from the best Family Business academic experts, in an enjoyable environment. Next Generation events help prepare younger members to take on their roles and responsibilities within the family business and develop their own network of peers. NxG International events are hosted by our various Member Associations and consist of world-class speakers.

“I shared my experiences and I saw in people’s eyes a sense of understanding, of “getting it”, that I don’t get from people in my life. Other people, without experience of what it truly means to have business and family linked, do not seem to have the breath of understanding about the difficulties family business have. I felt understood and life I found my mob!”

“My daughter came back very motivated from the NxG Summit. She learned a lot, partied a lot and I feel she is much more conscious and sensitive to the issues that affect the family and the business, the correct management of wealth and not falling in decadence. Thank you very very much for provoking all this!!”

“The networking provides significant value. We discovered that even if the family businesses come from different continents they still share the same values and ways of doing business.”

“I always learn new tips to use in my business and they always come from networking at the social events.”
