Weatherhead Family Business Speaker Series
Sponsored by: Weatherhead Student Services
Speaker(s): Andrew Connors and Emily Shacklett
Date & Time: May 17, 2011 6 PM - 8 PM
Understanding how to align the activities that allow for success as a family as well as a business is a challenge unique to family business owners. A business strategy that incorporates both the personal and financial needs of the family and strategic goals of the business is a dynamic process, requiring delicate balance, communication and collaboration among all stakeholders particularly during leadership and ownership transitions. Andrew Connors and Emily Shacklett will lead a discussion about lessons learned and best practices as well as key strategies that lead to successful outcomes for the business and personal satisfaction for the family. They will use actual case studies to better illustrate the strategies that are discussed.
Andrew Connors and Emily Shacklett are both advisors in the business owner practice group at Fairport Asset Management.

The firm’s professional staff includes CPAs, CFP certificants and CFA charter holders and is known for its offering of specialized services for succession and liquidity planning for business owners.
