Family Office Exchange (FOX), a global membership organization of enterprise families and their key advisors, has unveiled the agenda for its 2016 FOX Fall Forum, which is taking place November 2-4 in Chicago.
This year's Fall Forum, titled “Strengthening the Partnership”, will highlight issues affecting relationships between family leaders, office executives, and trusted advisors—and offer techniques for building stronger ones.
Highlights of the program include:
- Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments and Board Chair for DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc., who will join FOX founder and CEO Sara Hamilton in a fireside chat to discuss her patient investment philosophy and the many ways families can collaborate to make the world a better place in the coming decades
- Michael Hayden, Retired U.S. Air Force General, Principal with The Chertoff Group and former Director of both the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency, who will explore today's dynamic geopolitical events and risks with a special focus on worldwide intelligence and cybersecurity
- Julia Balandina Jacquier, Founder and Managing Director of JBJ Consult, who will speak about why and how leading families of wealth use impact investing including insights from her new study "Catalyzing Wealth For Change, A Guide to Impact Investing"
- Mark Hatch, Author of "The Maker Movement Manifesto", who will share how advanced manufacturing, crowdfunding, the collaborative economy and online markets are paving the way for individuals to create, innovate, and generate wealth for themselves and their investors.
“FOX Fall Forum is the family wealth industry's marquee event, with ideas and networking you won’t find anywhere else,” said FOX president Alexandre Monnier. “We are especially excited about this year’s agenda, which features world-class speakers who will cover an array of topics important to our members. If you are a family leader, family office executive, or trusted advisor, you truly won’t want to miss this Forum.”
The Fall Forum agenda features sessions addressing partnerships both inside and outside the family. It will also explore topics such as investing in the post-election environment, designing an owner education curriculum that informs and solidifies partnerships, understanding and addressing the wealth gap, and appreciating the role of family storytelling to support family continuity and vision.
And like at all FOX Forums, attendees will have the opportunity to expand their networks with other enterprise owners and highly-experienced executives at several engaging social events.
