USC Marshall Family Business Program Announces Year-Two Programs

Features series of monthly Los Angeles and Orange County member meetings and public workshops

LOS ANGELES--()--The USC Marshall Family Business Program today released its year-two program of monthly chapter meetings and public workshops that will take place from November through June of next year in both Los Angeles and Orange County.

“I am extremely pleased about the quality of programs and events we are providing to our members and their guests this upcoming year”

The program is designed to deliver world-class, practical learning, tools and insights with a focus on best practices using USC Marshall School of Business faculty, subject matter experts and peer group experiential learning.

“Building a successful business is hard work. Creating an effective family is also extremely hard work. Doing both in the context of a successful multi-generational family business can be overwhelmingly challenging,” said Ken Ude, director of the USC Marshall Family Business Program. “This is why we’ve created this unique, specialized program to help our members create and preserve wealth by increasing the professionalism of the business and the effectiveness of the family.”

Chapter meetings, which will be held in both Los Angeles and Orange Counties every other month, feature valuable insights from experts on topics ranging from family management, preparing the business and founder for a transition, resolving conflicts, and safeguarding and preparing the family for wealth.

The workshops, held monthly between chapter meetings and open to the general public, feature a boot camp on business and investing, managing social media and other life skills, win/win negotiations, trustee and beneficiary training, and foundations and the role of philanthropy in a legacy family.

The first chapter meeting, “Creating Your Toolkit for Addressing the ‘Family’ in a Successful Family Business,” takes place on Nov. 7 at the USC Irvine Campus and on Nov. 9 at USC’s downtown campus. The first workshop, “Business & Investing ‘Boot Camp’ for the Youth and the Non-Business Family Member,” is scheduled for Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to noon on the USC Campus and is open to the public.

“I am extremely pleased about the quality of programs and events we are providing to our members and their guests this upcoming year,” said Lee Hausner, Ph.D., author, international expert on family business issues and senior advisor to the USC Marshall Family Business Program. “We are partnering with experts from a variety of areas to provide the fullest and most useful learning experience possible for family businesses and family members who attend our events.”

The full schedule of the chapter meetings and workshops in addition membership information is available at www.marshall.usc.edu/familybusiness.
