Business families are critical to our economies and social fabrics. They need and deserve to be supported with quality educational tools.
Montreal, QC (PRWEB) November 19, 2011
The Business Families Foundation launches its first free iPad app, designed to help family business members and professionals working with them access short educational videos on the go. “We wanted to create a highly spontaneous educational user experience. This app will allow our affiliates and all individuals and specialists involved in family businesses to view a variety of short videos on critical topics for the development of successful family enterprises. These videos help build awareness of important challenges facing business families, inspire them in their leadership roles, engage them in family governance education, and also act as a neutral conversation starter on sensitive governance issues", reveals Dr. Pascale Michaud, President of the Business Families Foundation.
Entrepreneurial families and professionals working with them, will now be able to use this multimedia support on demand. The newly launched app will allow users to discover the Foundation’s large collection of educational videos and audio clips, its latest additions, explore a number of topics by category, keyword and title.
The President of the Business Families Foundation hinted the possibility of developing more apps and allowing eventual compatibility with iPhones. "Our vision is one of interconnected communities in the field of family enterprises, with effective communication between business family members, specialists, experts, and researchers around the world engaged in addressing the unique challenges and cultures of family-owned enterprises", explains Dr. Michaud.
The Business Families Foundation has been an active philanthropy for over two decades. “The organization’s goal is to provide multimedia-assisted educational experiences that help entrepreneurial families of all sizes and industries. Business families are critical to our economies and social fabrics. They need and deserve to be supported with quality educational tools", added Philippe and Nan-b de Gaspe Beaubien, the business family who launched the Business Families Foundation twenty-one years ago and serve as Co-Chairs of the Board.
