Dear All,

We have chosen Internalisation of Family Businesses as the main theme for this issue of the Family Business News. We have included the snapshots of some articles and gist of press clippings. Hope you will find them interesting.

Our annual training programme on “Family Business – Managing Growth and Transformation” is scheduled during October 16 – 19, 2013.  This programme focuses on identifying and understanding the challenges during the transformation process of a growing family business, and develops key skills for managing them. For details, please visit

As always, I encourage you to send your feedback and interesting articles which we can consider for inclusion in our forthcoming newsletters.

Best regards,
