FBN 15th NxG International Summit
27th April 2019, 00:00 - 30th April 2019, 00:00
Event Venue: Recife, Brazil
This year the 15th NxG Summit will look at how the next generation can drive both internal and external change for greater success and fulfillment.
In order to be the driver of change, the next generation need to decide which patterns of the past to discard and which to keep. Like the generations before, our generation needs to shape the world we want to live in. Positive change can come from safeguarding what was good in the past and upholding traditions; but at the same time, it could come from disrupting the old, breaking the rules and embracing the new.
Talking about disruption in the business world is currently en vogue and closely associated with innovative business models and start-up entrepreneurship; but disruption is but one of the mechanisms that allow us to adapt to an ever-changing world. The next generation ought to be alert and explore the various forces of change, since often they are the ones promoting change within their family businesses.
Change is inevitable: we can either lead it or be led by it. The world around us is transforming at an increasing pace and the question remains how could we be the ones in the driver’s seat as it impacts our personal and professional lives. Specifically, how can family businesses leverage the good of the past and harness the potential of the new?
