Family Business Resilience in Times of Crisis

June 16, 2020

FAMILY BUSINESS RESILIENCE IN TIMES OF CRISIS: BRIDGING RESEARCH AND PRACTICE Family businesses have been acknowledged for their superior longevity rates demonstrating their resilience over generations, beyond family, business, economic and context-specific crises. This panel will explore the factors, dynamics and impacts of resilience in family businesses from a dual perspective. Our panelists are scholars and practitioners in the family business field with a management and psychology background. They will share their insights based on research and cases then engage in a conversation with the participants by extrapolating their learnings to the current and future crises. Each panelist will propose a recommended reading prior to the session to encourage timely and fruitful exchanges and inspire future research directions.
