CeFEO Seminar Series

CeFEO Seminar Series

CeFEO organizes seminars for scholars, and family business practitioners such as owners, managers, advisors and policy makers with interest in family enterprising and ownership. The seminars vary in length and can be held as a 1 hour seminar, half day seminar or two day seminar.

Seminars are organized both internally within organizations or as open seminars in different locations. Each seminar treats a current topic of relevance for a wide audience of interested individuals. Seminars are led by Professor and co-Director of CeFEO Francesco Chirico and speakers may be CeFEO members or other experts (within and outside JIBS) in the particular subject covered during the seminar.

Specific emphasis is put on achieving a high degree of interaction between speakers and audience and to secure them a satisfactory learning outcome (e.g. feedback on how to strengthen the paper or address Editors & Reviewers’ comments, new knowledge on specific or broader topics etc.).
