Our leader, Dr. Jean Meeks-Koch has received yet another accolade. She was recently honored in London, England at the 2018 Family Firm Institute Global Conference for attaining FFI Fellow status.
Jean Meeks-Koch completed an advanced program of study as part of the Family Firm Institute’s Global Education Network. She presented at FFI annual conferences in 2012, 2016 and 2018, and has been a member of FFI for more than 10 years – all of which made her eligible for this recognition.
This distinguished certificate is presented at the conference to individuals of remarkable expertise; it represents that the highest standards and best professional practices will be used to add value to family business owners and family wealth clients. President of the Family Firm Institute Judy Green emphasized how the Positively People founder’s work with the FFI enables her to better guide those involved in a family business.
“Jean Meeks-Koch has gained a deeper understanding of the needs of family-owned enterprises and the many roles family business and non-family members play.”
Conference and FFI participants are exposed to exciting new information and resources for management science, law, finance, behavioral science and steps for forming collaborative teams— all topics and challenges we love at Positively People. FFI is an international organization that has over 1,800 members from 88 countries across the globe.
The education provided by FFI is a multidisciplinary program created to facilitate advancement for family enterprises worldwide by enabling collaboration between family enterprise practitioners and academics, creating a global network of professionals.
