Conversation Series
Conversation Series

In partnership with Farrer & Co and Institute for Family Business

A meeting of individuals - philanthropists, impact investors, wealth holders or inheritors, entrepreneurs and family businesses - who convene to share ideas, explore challenges, problem solve, learn from respective experiences and collaborate in a confidential and independent environment.

Born out of a desire for independent, solution orientated, peer-to-peer dialogue, the Conversation Series provides insight on trending or emerging social impact issues.
