About the lecture series

The annual Contemporary Issues in Family Business Lecture is held each September, and is supported by Family Business Australia. Family businesses are the backbone of the Australian economy with almost 70% of businesses in Australia being family owned and operated.

Each year the lecture is held to coincide with National Family Business Day and to recognise the contribution that family business make to the Australian community, economy and culture. The lecture hosts an eminent business or academic practitioner who gives an address on a contemporary issue facing family business.
