1:  Innovation
in business – Topic: Innovation is the
development of new values through solutions that meet new requirements;  it differs from invention in that innovation
refers to the use of a better and, as a result, novel idea or method, whereas
invention refers more directly to the creation of the idea or method
itself.   Innovation also differs from
improvement in that innovation refers to the notion of doing something
different rather than doing the same thing better.

Speaker: Mr. Mario Duca, Family
Business Consultant and Chairman of the Malta Association of Family Enterprises

Topic: While many family owned
businesses have a long-term objective of "passing the business on to the next
generation", in reality, only about 30% of family owned businesses successfully
transfer to the second generation. Furthermore, only about 15% make it to the
third generation,  and only about 5% make
it to the fourth generation. Why are so many family businesses unsuccessful at
making the transition to the next generation? 
Possible underlying reasons will be discussed at this workshop.
