Focus on Building Great Businesses forums enabled us to examine and discuss significant digital issues by looking at them from a contemporary marketing perspective. We were pleased over the years to have gifted guest speakers from a wide range of professions speaking on an diverse range of issues. The themes we covered last year include:

 

*Major issues confronting California families today

*Child custody: Proposed changes to shared parenting laws

*The impact of the Business Roundtable’s 2010 Intergenerational Report

*Startups in Silicon Valley: The real trauma of failure

*The social and economic costs of problem solving

*Bail me out: NSW young offenders and bail practices

*Stories from the battlefield: Being a human shield during the war for attention

*California’s homeless epidemic

*Domestic violence: The impact on families

*Christmas Program

And earlier this year:

*The Mount Jefferson Trust

*Family Life Continental: The pro-hunting movement

Please note: The Focus on Building Great Businesses Forum has been very successful over the years in providing informative, interactive, and interesting discussions into pivotal digital issues facing families. Sadly, the forums have come to an end. We sincerely express our gratitude and thanks to all our guest speakers and all who attended our forums over the years.
