The rise and rise of “Edible Blooms”: key insights for entrepreneurs and business families
Leaving secure work to start a family business from scratch requires courage, energy, and determination. SA Telstra Business Woman of the Year 2011 Kelly Jamieson was 28 years old when she had a business idea but few of the necessary skills to get it started.
On Thursday 25 July join us for a conversation with entrepreneur Kelly Jamieson from Edible Blooms as she talks about the challenges and triumphs, and the lessons learned along her business venture including managing fast growth, the art of working with family and entrepreneurial resilience amidst constant change.
Accredited Adviser Rosey Batt will interview not only Kelly Jamieson, but also Assoc. Professor Chris Graves from the Family Business Education and Research Group and together they will also discuss the latest research on the changing role of women in family businesses and the effect of leadership diversity on performance.
Historically, women have been under-represented in family businesses. However, with the occurrence of the great wealth transfer from the baby-boomers to the next generation, many women now are the driving force in family businesses. So bring your whole family to hear Kelly’s inspirational story and celebrate the strengths that women bring to their Family Businesses.
