Author Bio

Peter Jaskiewicz was born into a business family. He is a full professor in family business at the Telfer School of Management in Ottawa, Canada, where he holds a University Research Chair in Enduring Entrepreneurship. At Telfer, he conducts cutting-edge research on family business, teaches family business in regular and executive education programs, and leads the school’s family enterprise initiative. To share new best practices and research insights, Peter is also a frequent keynote speaker at both academic and practitioner conferences. Moreover, he trains family business professionals on succession planning and, in his advising practice, provides support for the development of responsible Next Gen owners and effective Next Gen teams.

Sabine B. Rau is a renowned expert on moderating succession processes and co-creating family constitutions in Germany and abroad, and a visiting professor at Telfer School of Management in Ottawa. Born into a family with a family business, she was inspired to study management but realized that family businesses, and their specific questions, were not part of the curriculum. With the aim to teach and share best practices on family businesses, Sabine built and led family business centers at three leading business schools. She advises business families and serves on several boards as an independent director. Moreover, she teaches at Luxembourg University and is a frequent speaker at practitioner conferences. Sabine is a mother of three and a grandmother of two.
