Reputation acts like a magnet: a good reputation attracts; a bad reputation repels.

Most families sit somewhere between these two poles: they neither repel nor attract — and they lack the real leverage a truly good reputation gives them.

Why is effective family communication necessary?

Toxic narratives often start from a simple misunderstanding – around employee welfare, tax residency or sustainability – that then attach themselves to the family, deepening into a negative reputation.

While many families recognise the risks of a negative reputation, they do not appreciate the benefits of a positive one.

Effective communication not only allows a family to create a profile that is accurate, up to date and representative, but also enables them to advance their business interests, build new relationships and open up new opportunities.

Successful individuals with powerful reputations are able to stand apart from their competitors and turn their standing into a business advantage.
