Top Family Business Researchers to Gather at Bond University

Leading family business researchers from around the nation and the world will gather at Bond University on Monday, August 4, for the First Annual Australian Family Business Researchers’ Summit.

Hosted by The Australian Centre for Family Business (ACFB) at Bond University, the aim of the forum is to address the most pressing issues affecting families in business.

Director of the ACFB, Professor Ken Moores, said the forum had attracted research-active delegates from some of Australia’s foremost universities.

“Australian family business researchers have established an enviable reputation globally for their innovative scholarship,” Professor Moores said.

“This inaugural forum will enable attendees to share their thoughts about how Australia’s international standing in this area can continue to be enhanced.

“As well as exploring potential research questions and matching these with robust methodologies and theoretical frames, there will also be discussions about how this dynamic community of scholars can work towards collaborative research projects across disciplines and between institutions,” Professor Moores said.

Professor Pramodita Sharma, incoming Editor of Family Business Review – the only scientific journal devoted exclusively exploring the dynamics of the family business – will address the forum.

Professor Sharma is Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Business Studies at Concordia University, in Montreal, Canada, whose research has been honoured with several international awards.
