FFI On Friday | December 15, 2017

Prepared Exclusively for FFI Members

Now Open! Call for Proposals for the 2018 Global Conference


Join the 2018 FFI Embankment Festival!

Camp out on the Thames for three days as you challenge and joust with your intellectual and personal best self at this festival of ideas and activities that will improve your understanding of yourself and the contemporary family enterprise field.

Festivals are many things around the world. They can be community events to recognize and celebrate unique traditions. They can be expressions of art and demonstrations of talent. They can be challenges to think outside of the box and experiment with something new.

About the Call for Proposals

Think: Fringe, Holi, Carnaval, Burning Man, music fests, cultural festivals, art festivals, and other unique fests – whatever comes to your mind when you imagine or go to a festival.

Think: games, improv, debate, performance – whatever comes on your radar screen when you think of format.

It’s a festival and the choice is yours! The only parameters are time. Sessions must be proposed in 90 or 60-minute timeframes.
