Dear friends and supporters of WIFU,

the current situation forces us to spend more time in our own four walls than most of us would like. In order to make the time at home as pleasant as possible for you and us, the WIFU Foundation launched the campaign WIFU vs. Corona paddy: In the next few weeks we would like to invite you to exchange ideas with us on weekly changing family business issues. The highlight of each theme week is a discussion in the WIFU online forum with one of our designated subject experts. Discussions take place via Zoom, a user-friendly video conference software.

This week we want to focus on digitisation in family businesses.

To familiarize yourself with the topic and prepare the online forum, we ask you to watch this video from our YouTube channel.

On Thursday, May 28, 5pm you will have the opportunity to speak with Prof. Dr. Marcel Hülsbeck to discuss this topic online. The joint discussion is based on the presented content of the video and then refers to specific questions from the participants. For better planning of the event, we would be happy to receive a short feedback as to whether you will participate in the online forum. You can register here.

If you would like to be informed promptly about the current suggestions and contents of our campaign, we ask you to follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn – there we link suitable WIFU publications in each theme week and inform you about upcoming key issues in the following period.

In addition to stimulating online discussions on our respective key issues, we hope that you and your family will enjoy health in the coming weeks.
