Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 8, 2011
Linda Mack, founder and president of Mack International, a premier retained executive search and human capital/talent management consulting firm, has been selected to speak at the Asian Family Office Forum 2011. The invitation-only conference will be held March 14-15 at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.
“Many Asian family firms are facing the challenge of preparing leadership and passing ownership to the next generation,” says Ms. Mack. “The forum focuses on preparing these family business owners for generational change.”
Terrapinn Holdings, Ltd. researched and developed this closed-door conference exclusively for Asian family offices, members of family businesses and their financial advisors. The forum offers practical solutions for the challenges facing affluent Asian families and family-run businesses in managing their enterprise, assets and wealth.
Linda Mack will lead a presentation on talent management in the family office. “The session will help family business owners evaluate the types of family offices and understand how to select a family office model,” she explains. “I will also share strategies for recruiting, managing and retaining the top talent needed for key roles in the family office.”
As in the U.S., many family firms in Asia started from modest entrepreneurial beginnings. Now many of these companies’ founders are facing the challenge of keeping the family committed to the business while achieving strong business performance.
The Asian Family Forum will address key topics including how to adapt to the new needs of wealthy families through a family office, and infusing family values and governance to grow the business.
In addition to presenting, Linda Mack will lead a panel discussion on “How to Nurture the Next Generation for a Perpetual Legacy”. Panelists will include: Sharon Stacey Johnston Chandran, CEO, Andorra Services, Singapore; Adele Levinge, CEO, Dennis Family Office, Australia; and Edouard Thijssen, CEO, TrustedFamily, Belgium.
There will also be sessions on identifying the best investment ideas for wealth management and how to craft the family’s investment policy to enhance returns. Other speakers will address how to transfer wealth in a globalized world, how co-investing gives access to potential untapped opportunities and how to preserve assets through trusts and tax-efficient structures.
Next-generation speakers will share their thoughts on how to work with the incumbent generation in planning for the family firm’s future. Other sessions will cover how to transfer wealth and design succession plans.
“The objective is to help families stay committed to their enterprise while sustaining the family into future generations,” says Ms. Mack.
