Thursday, May 14, 2020
8:30 a.m. – 10 a.m. via Zoom
The Zoom link will be sent out to those registered closer to the program date. Please connect with computer audio and video if possible.

This interactive, virtual workshop will highlight the challenges and opportunities of taking on a leadership role in a family business. Designed for NextGen leaders, we will discuss the impact of family business's history on your own ability to develop credibility as a visible leader. Current Generation/Owners/Parents may find this presentation helpful in providing ways to gain a better understanding of how to engage and support your Nextgen in their career and leadership development in the family business.

Panelists Tim Haag (State Collection Service), Trevor Wuethrich (Grassland Dairy) and Naomi Kroth (Bachmann Construction) will share their experience and lessons learned.

Key takeaways:

  • Explore ways Nextgens can manage and overcome the challenge of developing credibility while in the shadow of a parent’s success
  • Learn from peers about how to prepare for the next generation of leadership
  • Receive “Next Gens in Charge”, a toolkit that offers ways to prepare for leadership in your family’s business
