I am proud to announce that I have completed a fifteen month educational program and have been awarded both the
FFI GEN (Global Educational Network) Certificate in Family Business Advising (CFBA) and Certificate in Family Wealth Advising (CFWA) by the Family Firm Institute.
It has been a great experience: excellent faculty, comprehensive and thought-provoking readings and videos followed by tough assessment quizzes, and interesting classmates who have participated by webinar and online discussions — representing every continent but Antarctica!
Or, as the Family Firm Institute phrases it:
The certificates are presented to individuals who have achieved comprehensive professional knowledge and gained significant expertise that can be used as value to family business owners and family wealth clients. This distinction further ensures that the highest standards in professional best practices will be implemented. The Family Firm Institute (FFI) GEN Certificates in Family Business Advising and Family Wealth Advising are designed to increase awareness and exposure to concepts, skills and knowledge necessary to optimize effectiveness as family business advisors and consultants.
The Family Firm Institute (www.ffi.org), an international professional membership organization of over 1800 individuals and organizations across 88 countries, is dedicated to providing interdisciplinary education and networking opportunities for family business and family wealth advisors, consultants, educators and researchers.
