Managing a family business is unique, and complex. In partnership with KPMG Enterprise, this program focuses on strategies and tactics for addressing leadership, growth and family business ownership issues.
Who should attend?
Family members assuming a leadership/management role in their family business.
Family businesses are unique. Running one requires a different perspective.
In partnership with Ivey’s Business Families Centre and KPMG Enterprise, FamilyShift™ is a week-long program built for family members taking a leadership/management role in their family business. With case studies, break-out groups, guest speakers and experts, and coaching sessions, you’ll emerge an expert in the unique challenges family businesses face.
Interested candidates must complete an application form and be nominated by an Ivey Academy or KPMG Enterprise representative. Participants are selected by The Ivey Academy. Click the logo below to learn more from KPMG.
After completing the FamilyShift™ program, you'll receive an authentic digital artifact – also known as a badge. This badge showcases your achievements and commitment to professional development. You can share your accomplishment with your network by displaying digital badges on social media, websites, ePortfolios, professional networks, and email signatures. Included in your badge is a digital certificate. Your network will be able to view your personalized and authentic certificate through your online digital badge.
In addition to a digital badge, you will receive a FamilyShift™ Certificate of Completion, a powerful credential from the top business school in Canada.
