STEP Project Global Report Launch and Presentation:  The impact of changing demographics on family firms’ succession and governance

Please join us Thursday, October 24 from 12PM – 1:15PM for the much anticipated launch of the 2019 STEP Global Report to release the 2019 STEP Survey findings! We encourage all STEP members, interested researchers, academics, practitioners, and business families to attend the event at the Family Firm Institute Conference in Miami to showcase the findings of our 2019 global survey. 

Brief description of study: With people living longer, the traditional methods of transition and governance in family businesses are no longer appropriate. The 2019 STEP Project Global Report, based on more than 1,800 family business respondents from all over the world, explores and articulates how business families are dealing with these issues and what succession and governance models could look like in the modern era across different world Regions.

Event Location: Family Firm Institute (FFI) Conference – Lunch & Learn session, Miami, Florida, USA
