FM Day 2017 featured a dynamic program with interesting speakers, excellent hospitality, and ample networking opportunities. Gwynt was one of the partners who made the event possible and provided one of the master classes.

Professionalizing family businesses is a topic that has come into the spotlight in recent years. On an emotional level, the family director often does not want to professionalize at all. The family’s great fear or allergy is often that the business will slip into a bureaucratic, inflexible enterprise where family values and identity disappear.

During the session “The importance of the relationship between family values and operational & financial objectives,” Dirk Harm Eijssen discussed how crucial it is to establish the relationship between family values and operational & financial objectives and what the role of the CFO is in this. Practical examples illustrated the issues “underwater” during the realization of these objectives.
