Praise from "Family Meetings" with Chris Eckrich

Thank you for the excellent program and thank you for inviting David and I to attend. David and I are planning a meeting to discuss what we learned and discuss the possibility of joining the FBA. I can really see the benefit of being apart of FBA.

I was at the meeting yesterday afternoon on family meetings. Very informative.

Great event today!  Would you be able to forward on Chris’ PowerPoint?

Praise for NextGen Peer Group


"The Family Business Alliance has been an integral part of my personal and professional success as a businessperson. The relevance of the content presented at each FBA event and the next generation peer group meetings has truly shaped my career.  As a result, me knowledge, drive, and skills have been improved as a next generation business leader. Yet the most portable benefit for me has been the authentic and lasting relationships I've had the pleasure of developing in the next generation peer group setting.  I have learned from, encourage, and grown with my fellow peer group members each and every meeting." - NextGen cohort member

"Participating in the NextGen Peer Group has accelerated growth in every aspect of my business leadership.  It provides a forum that promotes growth in knowledge, strategic thinking, accountability for myself and my peers, communication, critical thinking, and so many other key components of effective leadership within a family business (or any business!).  And most importantly, I now have a network of peers in similar situations with deep roots of trust that allow us to discuss absolutely anything that needs to be shared, from family dynamics within the business to challenging personal situations, some of which have nothing to do with the business.  The value that I receive from participating in this group is immeasurable."- NextGen cohort member
