Family Advisory Council Convening

The Ownership Project at Oxford Saïd

25-26 February 2019, Oxford

What is good ownership?

Why does it matter, and for whom?

How does ownership impact on corporate strategy, and on the role and responsibilities of owners?

We're delighted to welcome our Family Advisory Council members to our inaugural convening on 25-26 February. We're thrilled that so many of you can attend.

Tuesday 26 February: Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

We close with an evening of provocation, discussion and exploration over dinner at Oxford’s celebrated Ashmolean Museum, the world’s first university museum and the first to open to the public. Opened in 1683, its founding principle – that knowledge of humanity across cultures and times is important to society - manifests itself in the rich collections, some of them from key families who retain a strong connection to, and influence on the Museum today.
