Partnering with Family Business Leadership Partners (FBLP)

We are proud to announce our partnership with Family Business Leadership Partners (FBLP) and support the family business leaders in southeastern Wisconsin! Family-owned businesses create 78% of new jobs in the US (according to SCORE) and add strength to our economy.  We had the privilege of presenting ‘What a Ride: Leadership Strategies in this Extraordinary Time’ today to FBLP members.  It was great fun connecting with this unique group of diverse businesses, that showed up virtually, to explore and learn together.  We look forward to sharing our expertise and supporting the continued success of family-owned businesses.
