2018 Institute for Family Business Spring Symposium, Friday, May 4, 2018

Press release from Baylor University


Owning a business is tough. Few understand the pressures and the pain. That lonely feeling of bearing life’s burdens falls on you, the owner.  You struggle with fears that you can’t let others see:

The Institute for Family Business @ Baylor University is a ‘tribe’ committed to the art of establishing well-being within a family business. We need each other to clash ideas and challenge each other to level up as leaders. We want to know that we are yielding fruit within our vocation. One of Seth Godin’s tribal attributes in his book, “Tribes,” is gathering. Our tribe gathers twice a year for the Fall Forum in November and for the Spring Symposium in May.


The 2018 Spring Symposium will be held from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the Conference Center (Rooms 143 and 144) of the Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation at Baylor University.  It’s all day long, but we will provide the coffee, the food, even something to write on.  You bring your questions, concerns, ideas, and, most importantly, your open mind to attack the issues that hinder your family or your business.


We will consider ways to mitigate these issues and create a new opportunity for you, your business and your family.  Together with conference leaders and your peers, we will dive into the complexities of business ownership and the compounding issues that family brings. Come ready to clash with your existing stories as you rise to the next level of mastery surrounded by others doing likewise. The Biblical charge to seek wisdom from a multitude of counsel forms the bedrock of our event. During this symposium you will hear from high content speakers, but you will also interact with other owners. They will learn from you and you will learn from them.


Its time we meet to slay the demons and embrace the fruit of family business. Join us as we gather and as iron sharpens iron we will elevate our level of play. This is an exclusive event with very few tickets offered because the experience is raw, the content is real and the work is relevant. For more information check out our website.


The room will be full of people who get it. People who make the difficult decisions and who put their game face on every single day despite the fear. They lead. They make payroll, they win they lose, they get it. Come interact and link up with your peers within the family business arena and arm yourself with new allies.  REGISTER HERE.
