Delaware Valley Family Business Center…
a family business learning community, since 1992

At its core, DVFBC is a community committed to helping business families flourish.  Our Educational Events are one concrete way we gather to learn and support business families of all sizes, industries and generations!

2017 Educational Events will:

  • Provide family business education.
  • Build community with member family businesses, sponsors and presenters.
  • Develop the concept of Navigating Change in Family Business.

While we often think of a family business as a steadfast presence in our community, we might overlook that it’s the ability to navigate inevitable changes in the family, business, and marketplace that really leads to success. Most of the life of a family business is lived in what we call liminal space, that place between the start line and the finish line, between “what it’s been like” and “where it needs to go.” And to navigate through that place we will need to build trust, healthy communication, strong commitments, and an uncommon resiliency to overcome obstacles.

All members will receive William Bridges’ Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change, which will outline some of the tools we need to make the most of the complex changes that take place in our overlapping personal, family and business lives.

 This is what you can expect when attending an event:

  • Engaging conversation (and food) around the tables
  • Input from family-business thought-leaders and DVFBC Educational Partners
  • Applicable stories from our members
  • Question and answer session
