PROGRAMS FOR ADVISORS

Professionals working with family businesses quickly discover the unique concerns and conflicts generated by the merger of personal and professional lives…and the complexity of working with a multi-generational group. Until recently, these professionals had few places to learn new, effective ways to assist their family business clients. The Aspen Family Business Group has developed a program to meet this need. Training sessions for business professionals designed around the book, Working With Family Businesses A Guide For Professionals, authored by The Group, are now available for your organization. This program is designed for experts in a variety of fields, including attorneys, accountants, insurance executives, financial planners and investment bankers. The program Working With Family Businesses” will help professionals appreciate the uniqueness of family business and learn useful techniques for working with clients toward their personal, financial and business goals.
