In Conversation with Dr.Jim Grubman:Helping Our Clients While Taking Care of Ourselves During Crisis

April 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

This is an unprecedented time. For many of us, the anxiety - our own and our clients - is palpable and preoccupying. As advisors to family enterprises, we can find ourselves immersed in complex conversations with our clients feeling woefully unprepared and unsure what to say or do. If you are feeling the pressure of caring for your clients, your family, and your business, you are not alone.

Jim Grubman has generously offered to share his perspectives, experiences, and practical recommendations about making it through this very difficult time, including how to take care of ourselves and our families. This conversation, moderated by Ruth Steverlynck, will be open to you to ask questions and participate in the discussion.

Jim reminds us that, during this time, we need to share our emotional reserves with each other, whenever we can. That is what we will all be doing on April 9 at 1:00 pm EDT via Zoom.
