Delivered by some of the leading minds in the field of Family Enterprise, instructors include David C. Bentall, Judi Cunningham, Wendy Sage-Hayward and Ruth Steverlynck. As the Founding Educational Partner for the Institute of Family Enterprise Advisors (IFEA) the Sauder School of Business continues to deliver the flagship FEA Program at its downtown Vancouver campus, and play a role in updating program content and hosting the on-line FEA advisor exams.
The Institute of Family Enterprise Advisors (IFEA) is driven to create better outcomes for families, their businesses and for their trusted business advisors. IFEA sets the standards of education quality for advisors with the Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) Program. This industry-leading Program is also a prerequisite to attaining the FEA Designation, which represents the pinnacle of professional expertise in the field of family enterprise advising.
Whether you are an accountant, lawyer, banker, financial advisor or a trusted family insider, the Family Enterprise Advisor Program augments your formidable technical skills with the strategies and tools to incorporate social and human considerations into your role as a trusted advisor. In doing so, you will not only grow your interpersonal intelligence; you will create a substantial competitive advantage for yourself for a comparatively small investment of time and money. With FEA certified business family advisors, the family receives advice better suited to their personal and business needs. And FEA designated business advisors that have met the requirements for certification increasingly gain the trust — and business — of their business family clients. To find an FEA certified business family advisor near you search our FEA directory.
