          Sharing Space: Multiple Generations in the Family Enterprise Speaker Fredda Herz Brown, Principal, Relative Solutions, presented at the O.Berk Company Family Business Forum at FDU on Thursday, October 10, 2013. More than ever before, several generations of family members are working together. This is a result of increased longevity (along with better quality of life and health in the golden years and a desire to stay involved,) tough economic conditions leading senior members to work longer, a huge and aging Baby Boomer cohort and a strong desire on the part of many families to sustain their endeavors across generations. Traditionalists (born 1925-1945), Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Generation X (1965-1980) and Generation Y/Millenials (1981-2000+) are sharing ownership, leadership and daily management. This interactive workshop discussed the developmental life situations of those born in each generation as well as their views on money, work, relationships and technology and the implications for family business leadership and generational transitions. Using a case study, the presenter lead a multi-generational discussion about the impact of birth timing and historical context of each generation as compared with the dynamics of business families in general and between family branches. We examined the question of, where does the greatest impact lie?
