Joint Ventures between Family Foundations and Other Funders

Presenters: Gena Rotstein & Richard Ouellette

 

More and more funders are requiring their recipients to work collaboratively with other organizations, but few funders model this same behavior. This workshop explores different collaborative approaches between funders for moving their philanthropic agendas forward. Over the course of the 90 minutes we will discuss how family foundations and private philanthropists can work with: government funders, other family foundations and private philanthropists, public funding bodies and community foundations and corporations. Client case studies will be provided and participants will leave with tools and resources they can take back to their families and businesses  More Information and BIO

Shakespeare and Family Business

Presenter: Dr. Lloyd Steier

William Shakespeare is commonly described as a “writer for all ages.” His work endures because it speaks to the human experience. This presentation explores and examines Shakespearian themes that might be usefully applied to working with–and in–family businesses. With reference to King Lear, Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet it explores themes such as succession, identity, monetizing love, sibling rivalry, obligation, and working with the next generation. Lloyd recently presented this session at the FFI conference in London, UK. It was also featured on CBC radio. More Information and BIO
