The only professionally facilitated, executive discussion group in New Zealand that deals with unique complexities created by the overlay of family, business and ownership.

On the back of 22 years of success in Australia, Family Business New Zealand is proud to launch the Forum Group Program, which will provide a confidential space for family business leaders, executives and CEOs to raise tough issues, workshop concerns and celebrate successes. Members who have had similar experiences are encouraged to offer their insights while being guided by an experienced group facilitator.

Members who have participated in forum groups have consistently shared positive outcomes and experiences from their involvement. In fact, 99% of forum participants surveyed said they’d recommend a friend to join.

“Three of my sons are members of forum groups and I’ve watched them all grow from it. They have access to what is essentially their own private board of directors.
Everyone is bound by
and they are there
to help you be a better person”.
Andy Kennard, Kennards Hire
