It’s never too late to start planning for the future for your business


That’s the key message for the 2014 Family Business Conference to be held on September 11, 2014 and presented by Skylight Financial Group.  This year’s conference, hosted by Smart Business, explores the theme of “Building a Formula that Works”.  A dynamic line-up of keynote speakers and panelists, made up of both industry experts and family business owners, will offer perspectives on real everyday issues facing family-owned businesses and share insights on the importance of building and sticking to a formula that works.  They will share real life examples of what separates success stories from failures.

Keven Prather of Skylight’s Business Private Client Group and panelist at this year’s conference said, “This is the third time that Skylight Financial Group has been the presenting sponsor of the Family Business Conference and we are delighted to be involved again as it’s a great conference with plenty of interactive workshops and lively debate.  It’s an excellent way to learn about how to start planning for the future of your business from leading experts who have been there and can give first-rate advice.  It covers a wide range of topics from identifying opportunities for integration of non-family members into your business to succession planning.”

The conference will take place on Thursday September 11, 2014 from 7:30 am to 11:30 am at Corporate College East.  You can register online at or contact Meredith Rankin at 440.250.7023 or See the flyer for further details on the conference and speakers/panelists.
