College Presents Lecture On Managing Boundaries In Family Business

MADISON – The fall program of the O. Berk Company Family Business Forum kicks off on Sept. 16 with “An Examination of Family Business Boundaries,” presented by Jane Adams, best-selling author and renowned expert in managing personal, professional and family boundaries.

The event, which will be held from 8-11:30 a.m. in the Rutherford Room in Ferguson Recreation Center, is part of a series presented by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Rothman Institute for Entrepreneurship. The O.Berk Company Family Business Forum addresses the unique challenges faced by family businesses and provides insight to help family business become more successful.


This unique seminar draws on Jane Adams’ ground-breaking research in Boundary Intelligence, the ability to manage personal and professional boundaries, and applies it to family businesses, where profits and sustainability are often sabotaged by conflict between the needs and requirements of family members and those of the business itself.

Adams, who holds a Ph.D. in social psychology, is the author of eight nonfiction books and three novels, an award-winning journalist, a founding editor of the Seattle Weekly, and an adjunct professor at the University of Washington. She is the recipient of the Family Advocate of the Year award from “Changes,” an organization devoted to improving relationships between parents and adolescent children. A frequent media commentator, she has appeared on many major radio and television programs.

To register, call 1-973-443-8880. Seating is limited. Registration is $50 and open to the public. A continental breakfast is included. Fairleigh Dickinson University is located at 285 Madison Avenue in Madison.
