Swiss Life Global Solutions was one of the sponsors of the conference: Future Leadership and Empowerment - Creating the Culture of Innovation and Responsible Growth

The 14th European Families in Business Conference from 19-21 June in Prague,  offered a private meeting place for the heads of business-owning and financial families, as well as their sons, daughters, spouses and hommes d’affaires.

The conference took place in the prestigious Lobkowicz Palace, a part of the Prague Castle complex. 

Didier Resch, Head of Sales Europe, Global Private Wealth Solutions, chaired one of the interesting interactive panels on Day one of the conference: Family control & business growth – the future governance of a family business, discussing the following subjects:

  • Developing a robust strategy of governance: Longevity, cohesion and creativity
  • A balancing act: Internal innovation and family tradition
  • Knowing when organic growth cannot meet a growth/preservation strategy – and when to look outside? 
  • The relevance of strategic choices and how to make them in a family business

The panel was composed by Jeremy Bronfman • Principal, Expo Investments (Bronfman Family Office), Canada; Cyril Camus • President, Groupe Camus, France; Priscilla De Moustier • Executive Board Member, Wendel Group, France; J Haynes • Chief Executive Officer, Haynes Publishing Group, UK; Dr. Denise Kenyon-Rouvinez • The Wild Group Professor & Co-Director, IMD Global  Family Business Center, Switzerland
