Next Generation (NxG) in Family Business Retreat Launched by FBUK

Family Business UK are delighted to launch a bespoke, workshop-based, Next Generation residential retreat exclusively for Next Gen’s working in a named family business.

The Next generation in family business retreat, taking place on the 22nd March 2024, will provide you with expert support, and targeted professional development, to help you clarify your personal “why”.

The unique programme will explore a mix of expert-led structured exercises, intimate conversations, real-world experience and knowledge share, invaluable peer-to-peer interactions, and exploration of practical tools, to help build new skills, all facilitated by family business experts.

Next generation in family business are uniquely privileged and burdened alike, with few outside their position truly understanding their experiences.

At their best, family enterprises offer a wonderful sense of belonging, of being connected to a long and meaningful business and relational history. Growing up in a family business, can result in an easy alignment with the organisational purpose, and from this, passion and energy naturally flow.

Sometimes, however, the weight of heritage, and the focus on the collective goal, can make it harder for individual family members to unearth and follow their own personal sense of purpose.

Taking place at the stunning The Grange Estate, Hampshire, and offering beautiful accommodation in one of their delightful homes, the NxG retreat offers a unique opportunity to:

◆ Connect with NextGen peers in a supportive, facilitated environment;
◆ Reflect on your personal ‘why’, and how this connects with your aspirations;
◆ Identify areas where you would like to develop or learn new skills.

Enjoy time informally as a NxG community, sharing drinks and dinner, and tour the estate, hearing from our hosts, the Baring family, how they have grown their business, crystalized their purpose, and nurtured working relationships, across the generations.

Spaces for the retreat are strictly limited, and for Next generation members of a named family business only. The retreat represents a unique opportunity, for an truly immersive professional and personal development experience, and places will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
