What I do
I am a family business activist and a change agent.
Over the years, I focused on understanding how family businesses work and what makes them sustainable in the hands of future generations.
I then translated my findings into bespoke tools that I put at the disposal of those business
families and NextGen family business entrepreneurs who were looking to devise a comprehensive and a scalable family social contract, in the interest of their family and their business.
My offering includes, inter alia:
1: I facilitate conversations among family business members and accompany them throughout their
succession planning journey; applying the 7-Step Methodology™, I developed, working
alongside over 150 families in business;
2: I help business families devise family social contracts and 100-year succession plans; and
3: I manage complex intergenerational conflicts and have become, over the years, the go-to person for mission impossible family business succession planning.
I monitor and assist in the implementation of family social contracts.
I offer support in the following areas:
Legal strategy and Globalization
Institutionalization and Governance
Owner and Shareholder relationships
Board composition and operations
Induction of non-family C-Suite executives
Third-party and joint-venture partnerships
Family office infrastructure
Portfolio revaluation and diversification
I am a passionate advocate of family, business, and financial governance, and I spend a great deal of my time reading and conducting research. I am often invited to join local, regional, and international forums to exchange views, share knowledge, and learn.
