The top ten mistakes that break up a family business
Jolene Brown was one of more than a dozen industry leaders who recently spoke at the Advancing Women in Agriculture Conference (AWC), which took place on Oct. 30 and 31 at the Hilton Fallsview Hotel in Niagara Falls, Ont.
Brown, who is a farmer, family farm consultant and public speaker, provided conference attendees with a few take home tools to assist in the transition and succession of a family business.
Her presentation, The top ten mistakes that break up a family business touched on everything succession-related, from in-laws and out-laws, off-site family and estates to advice on daily communication and holding important meetings.
