Family Businesses:
Challenges and Opportunities

Families have special issues and working with family members in the same company can be challenging! Join the discussion with our very special panel of second and third generation family members:

-- Kurt Van de Wetering (VP of Ivy Acres)
-- Harry Armon (President of ARCAP Partners)
-- Ryan Whitcomb (Whitsons Culinary Group)
-- Bill Whitcomb Jr (Whitsons Culinary Group)
-- David O. Schwartz (Executive Confidential) (Facilitator)

The informal discussion will address the following issues:

-- Are family businesses more dysfunctional than non-family businesses?
-- What is it like working for dad or for a sibling?
-- Do you constantly have to prove yourself?
-- What is the greatest challenge? What is the greatest benefit?
-- Should relatives work outside first, before joining the family business?

This promises to be a very special night that will benefit everyone. Please join us and invite your friends. They'll be glad you did!
