6th Annual Family Office Educational Forum & Roundtable 

We at Lido Consulting have found that today, family offices more than ever are looking for guidance from both external sources and their peers at other family offices.  We have been seeing a very substantial increase in attendance at our various family office events as a result. As you know, our events are designed to provide the opportunity to network and learn from your peers as well as to hear about the latest cutting edge ideas from experts in the area of family office management. 

Last year's event was extremely well received, so as a result, we have decided to extend our regularly scheduled family office director’s luncheon meeting to a full day event from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm on Thursday, June 5th at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.  The format for the day will consist of two hour investment presentations about ways that family offices and high net worth investors can take advantage of opportunities in today’s volatile investment markets.  We will also have an economic outlook, four lunch workshops, Jamel Mashburn, Jamaal Wilkes, and Nolan Bushnell. We will conclude with Greg Kushner, Founder of Lido Consulting, moderating a panel of experts involved in the ultra- high net-worth arena.  Each panel member will briefly discuss what topics he or she is seeing the most interest from their family office clients in their various practice areas.  Following their remarks we will open the meeting to the audience to ask questions and to hear from our panel of experts as well as fellow family office executives on topics that they face in their own offices.  This roundtable discussion format is modeled from our very successful family office roundtable discussion group held each year at our annual Family Office Investment Symposium.   We hope you will be able to attend.

Space is limited to 100 attendees. There is no fee to attend.
