Campden Wealth are delighted to announce that the 15th flagship European Families in Business Conference and Gala Awards will take place on the 12-13 June 2018 in Madrid, Spain – a major hub for European family business activity, with 85% of companies categorised as being family-owned. 
While family businesses are crucial to the health of Europe's economy, they are not without there challenges. No matter where you are in the industry life cycle, family life cycle, and the business leader’s own life cycle – uniting the family, growing the business, and managing talent is key for long-term success from generation to generation.  
This is why for the 15th year, Campden Wealth are bringing together the leading European and international business-owning families to share rich insights for navigating an economy and family ecosystem that is globally interconnected and immensely complex. The “off-the-record” conversations and peer-to-peer connectivity is designed to equip attendees with the knowledge and network to outperform your financial, operational and future goals.
  • Benchmark against how other families are operating and performing - gaining exposure to new thinking and ideas
  • Learn how to optimise and fund growth, the corporate and family mind-set required, and the external factors that must be considered to ascend to a position of financial strength
  • Improve overall competitiveness through deconstructing bureaucracy and legacy governance to enable innovation in a non-traditional way
  • Uncover what resources, skills and talent will be needed to respond to the global tilt – including how to reorient the organization's psychology and decision-making
  • Optimize generational transfer and succession – exchange experiences and strategies for effectively engaging the NxG and integrating their passions into the family business
