In recent years, people have begun paying more attention to the value of sports beyond athletic performance. In today’s complex and ever-changing business environment, successful leaders have much in common with top athletes in terms of behavioural traits – bolstered self-confidence and emotion management under high stress; the ability to cope with change and failure amidst continuous competition; the ability to encourage and motivate team members to achieve shared goals.

It was a cool and crisp autumn afternoon in the autumn of 2017. Leaves fell from the trees, grazed by the first hints of the winter wind. I remember the day so well, sitting in the only Starbucks in a small town somewhere in the central US when a quick click on Google sparked my life-changing journey with CEIBS.

Over the past four decades, China’s reform and opening-up has brought about a dramatic shift in the business landscape for Chinese family firms. On the one hand, family businesses are rare opportunities made possible by government policies, rapid economic growth, consumption upgrade, balanced development between urban and rural areas and among regions, continuous expansion of domestic demand and the “Belt and Road Initiative”; while on the other hand, they are grappling with challenges in adapting to economic transformation and changes in the global economy, and in improving the enterprise system. Facing both opportunities and challenges, how will family businesses stay dynamic and competitive? As a traditional Chinese saying goes, “Changes in nature occur in an orderly manner on a periodic basis – that is, they conform to some laws.” As the traditional pattern of development is apparently out of date, family businesses need to figure out whether to remain unchanged or to embrace change, and which aspects should be changed or kept constant. As another saying goes, “Constancy goes hand in hand with change – whatever does not need change should stay constant, while whatever needs change should be changed.” When it comes to “constancy vs. change”, two generations of family business leaders tend to be deeply divided and even at loggerheads. Given China’s shifting business landscape, can a new generation of family business leaders combine their ingenuity and international vision with the entrepreneurial spirit of the older generation to lead their companies forward? These questions are worth discussing in depth. Co-organised by China Family Business Review and CEIBS, the 6th China Family Business Succession Forum & CEIBS 8th China Family Heritage Forum 2019 will bring together family business owners, successors and scholars from the US, Europe, Australia, South-east Asia, Japan and South Korea, as well as Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. On the theme of “Constancy and Change”, guests will deliver keynote speeches and participate in roundtable discussions to share exemplary Chinese and overseas family firms’ innovation and entrepreneurship from different perspectives so as to explore how to make family businesses sustainable.

We are in the midst of a digital disruption where new digital technologies are not only transforming existing businesses and industries as we know today, but creating new ones. Digital disruptions are redefining industry participants, business models, customer interactions, organisational structures, systems, processes, and even the nature of work. They enable new business applications, including smart cities, smart healthcare, smart homes, digital finance, and digital work. Managers today are therefore confronted by frequent digital disruptions and the need to manage digital transformations and innovations more effectively.
