Ole Miss Family Business Symposium

Symposium of family businesses “It’s All Relative” Ole Miss Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center. “

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES, November 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ – The University of Mississippi’s Inaugural Family Business Symposium will focus on the unique challenges and opportunities facing Mississippi family businesses. These family businesses are of key importance for the state’s economy as well as for the relations and ties established in the state that unites people from all walks of life. Therefore, the symposium promises to be an invaluable experience for everyone involved in the management of a family business and anyone who recognizes the importance of family businesses in the social and economic fabric of Mississippi.

The forum is attended by business leaders, family members and employees of family businesses from various industries who will share their unique knowledge and business development opportunities. The interviews that will take place are essential to ensuring the company’s longevity – ensuring that future generations can stay true to the core principles of the family business while learning best practices to ensure a successful and sustainable business.

Attendees at the CIE 2022 Family Business Symposium will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts about the best practices of running a successful family business in Mississippi. Panelists include Benton Turnage (Gulf Point Advisors), Donna Bruce (FORVIS), Kap Primos (Butler Snow LLP), Hale Dees (Community Bank), Jordan Bryan (Ross and Yerger), as well as Dr. Walter Davis (professor of management) at Ole Miss). These experts will share their thoughts and engage with participants on topics such as mergers and acquisitions, accounting and taxation, processes and structuring, banking and liquidity, insurance needs, employee retention and market changes.

The symposium is not only a space to collect new information, but also to share unique insights that connect different industries and can be used in the management of family businesses not only in Mississippi, but across the country. The symposium will also provide business leaders, family members and employees with the opportunity to share their knowledge and springboard ideas. In addition, there will be many networking opportunities so participants will be able to make valuable contacts with other business leaders in the state. There is a lot to learn by engaging in other family businesses that face the same challenges and strive to get similar insights to ensure success.

Steve Grantham, Jr., president of JR Restaurant Group, who will be one of the speakers at the symposium, says: “We are honored to support Ole Miss CIE and this new symposium. Ever since my father founded JR Restaurant Group in 1993, my family has been uniquely aware of the opportunities and challenges of running a family business in the state. ”

The JR Restaurant Group is committed to putting people first and always caring about the communities they serve. In these people and communities, JR Restaurant Group sees the endless possibilities and the possibility of directly influencing to help each of them develop their full potential. This family business believes the symposium will be invaluable in ensuring that the concept of a family business remains strong in the face of impersonal corporations. The focus should be on people, and JR Restaurant Group believes that the discussions that will be held at the symposium will ensure that this does not happen and that family businesses continue to serve their communities for many years to come.

JR Restaurant Group oversees growth, culture, and social relationships at J&R Outback Steakhouses franchise locations including Flowood, Hattiesburg, Meridian, D’Iberville, Tupelo, and Southaven (all in Mississippi), as well as Cordova and Jackson, Tennessee.
The symposium will be held on November 3, 2022 at the Oxford Conference Center, University of Mississippi, with a pre-event reception on November 2, 2022.
