The Business of People: Building Capability and Leading Performance was the theme of the state conference held Friday May 19th. The conference programme covered the specialties of working in a family business and with family members. It was a content rich programme and feedback received from those that attended can be found on the SA Family Business Australia Facebook site here: The short vignettes really capture the takeaway value that delegates received listen here :

 I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the SA Committee who worked diligently to bring this thought provoking and informative conference together  with special mention to Lowen Partridge, Mary Mercuri, Zoe Detmold, Debbie Reed, Sarah Leo, Graham Andrewartha, Jill Thomas.
