Here’s more information about the Center: “The Center for Private Business enables privately owned businesses to achieve dreams for their business, family, employees, community and stakeholders by providing access to industry leaders, resources, networks, and education. The Center’s programming centers around 6 central tenets that have been identified by privately held businesses as most critical to their success. Those are: Culture, Leadership, Governance, Succession Planning, Strategic Planning, and Family Harmony.”
Also, the WAKETriangle community is hosting a couple of events in February that might be of interest to our Raleigh-Durham parents:
