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

I am delighted to inform you that we will be organizing the Fifth Asian Invitational Conference on Family Business at the ISB during February 6 – 8, 2015 with “Continuity of Family Business across Generations” as the main theme. As always, we have the Academic Conference on February 6 and Business Conference on February 7 & 8.  Details will be updated at shortly. Please block your calendars calendars for the said dates.
