"After attending these workshops in IBA during last 8-9 months I used to ask myself, it does not sound good if ignore the warning signs. Real life examples are available on any argument, query, disagreement etc. I will recommend this series to all family businessmen and members of their families. Normally in family business management positions are inherited, whereas management is a responsibility and discipline, I hope after attending these workshops, Family Members will be in a position to differentiate Ownership, Business and Management. The faculty of SPJIMR was Superb & Admirable."

"This series helped identifying weakness and neglected areas especially areas where small changes mean increase in profitability as well as correcting focus on business in terms of continuity and growth. This program deals with practical issues faced by business people in their daily routine and as a result have been assumed to be under control/solved. In reality these underlying issues hamper growth and performance of organization. Due to practical nature of the workshop, I will recommend other Family Businessmen in Pakistan to join this one of a kind series."
