Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Linda C. Mack, founder and president of Chicago-based Mack International LLC, the premier strategic family office/human capital management consulting firm, will moderate a key panel discussion during the 2014 North American Family Office Conference, Nov. 19-20 at The Taj, Boston.
On Nov. 20, Mack will moderate a panel of family members and principals titled, “Impacting the Family Office: The next generation taking the lead.”
“This session will feature family members sharing perspectives on multi-generational challenges facing families and family offices and how their respective families have addressed those challenges. We will also discuss experiences that were most successful and lessons learned from different approaches,” said Linda Mack.
This exclusive Campden event is expected to attract more than 120 family principals and family office executives from across the country for two days of discussions on issues and opportunities critical to the family office sphere. Now in its ninth year, this private meeting for ultra-affluent families in North America offers a compelling combination of peer-to-peer learning and networking for family office principals and executives.
“Every family faces these generational questions,” Mack noted. “Questions regarding not only when and how best to engage younger generations, for example, but once engaged, how the next-generation family members might work to successfully gain the cooperation of older generations and potentially influence the direction and agendas of their family office over time.”
Mack continued, “There is a broad range of activities that families and family offices often consider to increase engagement of different generations. Some might encourage next generations to be involved in social impact initiatives, and others may seek to involve them in family office committees or other leadership governance roles as soon as they appear mature enough to begin. Given the dynamic role of individual personalities, interests and skills, no two families will approach next generation engagement the exact same way. We’re looking forward to a lively yet thoughtful discussion of best practices and actionable ideas,” she added.
The 2014 North American Family Office Conference, Optimizing the Structure and Performance of the Family Office for Sustainable Wealth Preservation and Transfer, will feature an agenda covering a variety of key issues including the impact of the shifting political landscape on single-family offices in the United States; investment performance strategies; strategic planning to ensure alignment with long-term family goals and objectives; and how families are tackling succession-planning challenges to ensure the multigenerational sustainability of the family office.
