Progressive Conversation – Finding Your Voice as Rising Leaders

June 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Progressive Experience Event Banner - Website

Rising leaders often need to earn trust from current decision-makers and founders to start building their own path. Finding their voice as successors, in the family and the business, doesn’t mean silencing the guidance of the senior generations. Often, it is the ability to amplify the conversations between them and with their peers. When the family moves past communication barriers, their cross-generational dynamics might become the most empowering element to their legacy’s success.

Join Margaret-Jean Mannix, Family Council Co-Chair, for a discussion where we bring senior and rising generations together to put their perspectives forward as complementary forces, allowing for a learning experience like no other. As our special guest, we’ll welcome Mehrad Jaberansari, Vice-President of the FBN-International NxG Leadership Team, an aspiring entrepreneur, and a 3rd generation member of a Canadian-Iranian enterprising family.

About FBN-I NxG and Entrepreneurs Communities:
Globally, FBN engages 16,000+ family business members, nearly half of them identified as NxG. As the leaders of tomorrow, the NxG community has also become a strong voice for Intra- and Entrepreneurship, pushing enterprising families worldwide to be great agents of positive and creative change. Encouraged by a safe place where rising leaders support one another through their common challenges and aspirations, next gens have also become more confident to lean on the senior generations for inspiration, instead of seeing them as a force that should be feared or resisted.
