Family business succession a full day’s topic at Oct. 18 session at Gonzaga

Gonzaga University is hosting an all-day Family Owned Business Seminar, running 8 a.m.--5 p.m. on Oct. 18.

It’s at the Jepson Center on the GU campus. The session will focus on strategies and steps to follow for families needing to keep a business going and planning for the future. It’s $195 per ticket and you can register here.

The main speaker is Lee Hausner, author of “Hats Off to You: Balancing Roles and Creating Success in Family Business Succession.”

It’s described as a six-step transitional model for succession in family business. Hausner is a noted family business consultant and psychologist specializing in issues of wealth and wealth transfer.

Worth noting: search Google Knol for “business succession” and you get 292 results.

If you search Knol for “business success” you get 10,000 results. Mathematically, it must be much harder finding solid advice for the first topic than the second, or do you not agree?
