Our Programs

Client Specific Programs

We understand the children in multi-generational family businesses are in a unique set of circumstances that provide them a myriad of opportunities, life experiences and responsibilities to themselves and their family enterprise. We will work with your family to create experiential and relevant programming that uses nationally recognized financial core competency standards and focuses on the distinctive needs of your family business.

 

Our professional assessment of your needs will establish all that is meaningful in your family legacy that you want included in your program.

Relational Development is Key

Family Biz Kids programs are dynamic, growing, changing, developing maturity and evolving their own culture over time. The programs are designed to continue for generations. Relationships are nurtured and grown between not only family members but the principal and Family Biz Kids staff who commit to be a part of these programs year after year. This relational development is the cornerstone to supporting the next generation’s development, commitment to business enterprises and strong family relationships.
