Young Owners Programme 2020
The Young Owners Programme launched in the summer of 2019 in Berlin, Germany. This annual development programme is geared toward the Owners Forum’s youngest family members as they navigate their way toward deeper participation in the family enterprise.
While the youth programme shares components with traditional Owners Forums like workshops and innovation sessions, it focuses primarily on the dynamics facing younger family enterprise members utilizing the most current and effective learning patterns. Small, self-guided peer mentoring circles create and cement important and trusted bonds. Continued collaboration among the group supports each programme member during the formative years of their professional careers.
Young Owners Programme fosters meaningful relationships among a new generation of family enterprise leaders on a global scale.
Young Owners Sessions
Young Owners Sessions revolve around the dynamics of young family members stepping into new responsibilities in their family enterprise. Experts and senior owners of legacy family enterprises share best practices, success stories and lessons learned along the way. Discussions also address current developments and strategies related to managing generational shifts in family ownership structures as well as past and emerging roles in society.
Peer Dialogue Sessions
In order to bond and develop valuable networks, small and trusted circles of future owners form to generate relevant topics and self-guide through areas of social, economic and family enterprise interests. Participants share experiences and current areas of personal development as well as their visions for a professional mandate in anticipation of their future role in the family enterprise.
Innovation Sessions highlight breakthrough ideas that harness opportunity and values-based innovation to tackle global social challenges. Young, civic-minded entrepreneurs and technology pioneers share their disruptive visions on-location to provide real-world dimension and draw conclusions about trend landscapes, new technologies and projected socio-economic scenarios around the globe.
