Panel speaker The Importance of Philanthropy in Family Business Succession


STEP and Philanthropy Impact are giving a seminar in London on 21 October 2015 on the components of effective family governance and philanthropy's role in business succession. The panel of this seminar includes Maya Prabhu (Coutts), MYriam van der Elst (Epic Foundation), John Rhodes (Stonehage Fleming) and Dr. Ineke Koele.


This session is suitable for family offices and advisers who support family businesses from end to end, through wealth creation, establishing a common family charter and to exit planning and legacy. The next generation of family business leaders may hold different values and work in different contexts to their parents, leading to conflicts of leadership, ownership and control of family business and its charitable activity. The panel will discuss how philanthropy can help family agree on common purpose and goals and value non-monetary capital amongst its members. The panel will discuss the potential for partnerships and collaboration between family projects, supporting leadership, responsibility and engagement amongst the next generation.
