Business Family Day

“Transformational Leadership”

 

Family-owned enterprises are facing a landscape of ever-increasing complexity. The global pandemic is only one of the challenges business owners in the MENA have had to tackle over the past few years - socio-economic shifts, disruption and a millennial workforce are but some of the factors influencing decision making. This session will explore how family business leaders are addressing the new reality and how their leadership is transforming their organisations for the future.
