FAMILY BUSINESS PEER GROUPS IN NORTHEAST WISCONSIN
We are collaborating with the Wisconsin Family Business Center (FBC) which is affiliated with the
Wisconsin School of Business at UW Madison, to bring peer groups for CEOs and Future Leaders to
Northeast Wisconsin this fall (2023). Our two organizations have been collaborating for the past couple
of years to provide similar peer groups in the Madison and Milwaukee areas.
More information on our peer groups:
What: Two facilitated peer groups
One for family business CEOs
One for Future Leaders (the younger generation) in family businesses
When: Proposed timeline- September 2023 through June 2024
Meeting Frequency and Duration: Each peer group will meet once a month for
approximately 6 hours
Where: The Fox Valley Region
Goal: Our peer groups will provide a confidential environment for family business professionals who encounter the unique opportunities and challenges of being involved in a family business; participants will be able to connect with other family business owners, leaders, or future leaders. Benefits include peer-to-peer learning, support, problem solving, personal and professional development.
Topics, Content, and Process: Topics may include succession, the transition of ownership & leadership, family dynamics, business strategy, leadership development, communication and conflict management, etc. In addition, subject matter experts will be brought in from time to time as speakers. to present content that is of interest to peer group members. Finally, the group will offer a trusted environment where people can be open about their personal, professional, and family issues and concerns, share information and learn from one another, and look at their own growth and development as leaders.
Facilitation: Our peer groups will be led by a trained facilitator with expertise in family businesses.
