FBA Research & Education Symposium

Family Business Australia held a Family Business Research & Education Symposium in Perth on 31 August 2011. Academics and practitioners from around Australia joined colleagues from China, New Zealand, Germany and the United States to participate in paper presentations around the day’s theme; “Family Business Research, Practice and Policy: Interpretation and Integration”. A cross pollination of theories, practices and research findings created a content rich day which included a keynote speech by Australia’s leading family business academic, Professor Ken Moores, AM.
