As an author, educator, consultant and speaker, Greg McCann works with family enterprises in the areas of succession, communication, conflict resolution, gender issues, and with a special emphasis on helping the next generation succeed in both their careers and lives.

McCann has helped numerous family enterprises transition to future generations. By including all involved members of the family and the business in the consulting process, he ensures that all perspectives are considered. Thus his clients are able to identify key issues which can then be addressed directly and honestly in the context of long-term family relationships.

He speaks with the voice of experience-in an approachable and humorous, yet highly focused style.
