COVID-19 has changed the world, not only at a physical level, but even more profoundly, on a psychological and emotional level. In the midst of this turbulence, family businesses need to be able to think through difficult situations with calmness
and clarity, in order to come up with the right decisions for the people they serve.
Proactive action helps maintain our personal sanity, professional resilience and entrepreneurial success as NextGens! As such, we are ready to start 2021 with tools that will help us flourish in this unpredictable time.

After 7 years of running operations for the luxury brand Risis and working on group strategy for the conglomerate, he finally realised that true luxury is having the opportunity to cultivate the heart and mind.
