Family Business Stories

Hearing different family business stories at the beginning of our monthly Seminars has become widely recognized as a ‘Members’ favourite.’ Family Business Stories add a special interest factor to our already valued program, and are just one of the things that sets us apart from any other organization.

Our members find it interesting to learn about what makes their fellow family businesses unique and what they have so proudly achieved, helping them to better relate to their peers, and feel that they are not alone in their own business journeys.

The value of relationships and peer support in the family business community are among the greatest benefits CFFB has to offer. Having a group of people who understand and can sympathize, but can also offer insight and feedback to your issues backed by real life experience is invaluable.

Are you ready to share your story?

Our Administrative Director will assist your family every step of the way, ensuring that your presentation is a success! There are many options for you to consider regarding the delivery of your presentation, and these will be reviewed with you during your initial preparation meeting.
