Strategic planning for family businesses is the focus of the Center for Family Business event Wednesday, Nov. 19.
Daniel Innis, dean of the UNH Whittemore School of Business and Economics, will present the workshop. The event begins at 8 a.m. at New Hampshire Distributors, 65 Regional Drive, Concord, with a continental breakfast. The program begins at 8:30 a.m. Lunch will follow.
“If the reason your company does not have a strategic plan is because you think strategic planning is not for family businesses — it is not for small firms, it is too constraining, it is just an academic exercise, or it is not needed — this program is for you. Many firms view the planning process to be as important as the final plan. This hands-on session will explore the process, steps and benefits of strategic planning for family-owned businesses,” said Barbara Draper, director of the Center for Family Business.
To register or become a member of the Center for Family Business, call Barbara Draper at 2-1107, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The event is free for Center for Family Business members. The cost is $99 per person and $250 per family for nonmembers.
The Center for Family Business, under the Whittemore School of Business and Economics and the UNH Graduate School, is sponsored by Mass Mutual Financial Group, Thomas Davidow Associates, Baker Newman & Noyes, Pierce Atwood, MPI Management Planning, Inc., and Ocean Bank. It is a membership program to provide owners and managers of entrepreneurial businesses with an opportunity to exchange ideas and information and to discuss business challenges, concerns, and solutions.
