Rich list poor list with David Smorgon OAM

Today’s society and economic complexity makes the transition of intergenerational wealth a critical and complicated challenge for affluent families.

Family Business Australia cites that, Australian family-owned businesses have an estimated wealth of $4.3 trillion. In addition, that more than 30% of all family-owned companies exist in the second generation; 12% will remain viable in the third generation however only 3% will operate in the fourth generation and beyond.

Are you a leader building your family business?

Working in a family business can be satisfying as well as demanding. Typically, there are challenges carving your position on your terms.

Coraggio is delighted to extend a complimentary invitation to join us to hear first-hand how we can expand and future-proof your business, followed by an upfront and personal keynote speaker session with one of Australia’s leading family advisors, David Smorgon OAM.

Opened by our CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how being a part of a Coraggio peer-to-peer Advisory Board provides a sustainable solution to navigate your business effectively throughout 2021 and beyond.

Followed by David Smorgon OAM who will provide insights into:

  • Why so many families in business dysfunctional?
