The conference was organised by Campden Wealth. Most sessions were led by a panel of distinguished family business owners, Campden Wealth representatives, researchers on family business issues. Some of the richest and most influential family business owners of various generations shared their experiences on succession, governance entrepreneurship and innovation. Prof Adendorff and Prof Venter facilitated a group discussion on cultural challenges experienced by family businesses when they enter African and other international markets.
