This year’s Focus On Competitive Advantage is all about elevating your family business.  It’s time to take things to the next level, and this event will get you there!  Bring the entire team to maximize goal alignment, communication, and renewed passion!

We will help you elevate these aspects of your business:


Your team is everything.  Establishing efficient processes, effective communication, and eliminating drama will keep your team fulfilled and productive. We will look at your organizational structure, interpersonal relationships, and “right person – right position” matching to elevate your team to the next level.


Your team won’t be passionate if you aren’t.  As an owner/leader your passion for the business must be unmatched and infectious. Let’s renew your passion and inspire your team.


It’s not ALL about the money, but the money is important and every family business wants to maximize profits.  There’s a lot of “economy concern” right now, and we will address these issues and help you plan wisely for the future of your family business.

It’s Time to Elevate Your Family Business!  Join us Sept 21-23 in Fort Worth, TX at the iconic Hotel Drover.
