PwC NextGen U: Moving from Next to Now

PwC NextGen U has been postponed due to COVID-19. We will explore rescheduling the event for a future date and will update this page once our plans have been solidified.

All of us at PwC are committed to supporting our clients and communities during this time, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. Our website has more on responding to the potential business impacts of COVID-19.

PwC NextGen U is a multi-year, global leadership development program for family members that have been identified or recently appointed as the future leaders of their family enterprise. It is designed specifically to immerse future leaders into today’s dynamic business issues, provide key leadership development, and connect them to a global community that will support their continued growth - helping the “Next” leaders transition to “Now” leaders.  

The program is focused on 4 key areas:

  • Connectivity: opportunities to form lasting relationships with peers and industry experts
  • Experience: hands-on learning from the world’s leading business organizations, tailored to participants
  • Development: new perspectives and insights for leadership development
  • Action: becoming the “Now” leader by completing the program with an actionable strategy to apply to their family enterprise

Moving from Next to Now: Driving Growth for the Next Generation(s)

Taking the next step for the family business - whether it is continuing to offer existing products and services, pursuing new markets and strategies or even considering divestiture - is one of the most critical decisions business owning families and their leaders make.  Without thoughtful and strategic focus, decisions can impact not only the state of the business, but also the harmony of the family.  Successful multigenerational families make a shift from family business to enterprising family by broadening their growth approaches and strategies. As a leader of your family enterprise, how can you better prepare for the next phase?  How can you create a clear and sustainable vision for your family’s future?

Event topics:
  • Growth strategies including reinvestment/diversification
  • M&A and capital sources
  • Portfolio strategy
  • Sustainability
  • Governance
  • Family business stories: A key highlight each year are the family business stories shared by leaders who have lived the challenges we are discussing. This year's current and former leaders will share their triumphs and tribulations of growing a business and a family.
