At the Goering Center, we offer a variety of educational programs to help you connect, learn and grow alongside other family and private business leaders.

Our single-day events, multi-day workshops and annual awards event let you hear from subject matter experts, collaborate with and learn from family and private businesses facing the same challenges you are.

Roundtable Overview Meeting

The Goering Center will host a complimentary Roundtable Overview. Participants will experience a “trial” roundtable meeting to see if a roundtable is right for them.

The best learning opportunities at the Goering Center are when members learn from their peers. Our Executive Roundtables provide this opportunity. Eight to ten members meet in an atmosphere of confidentiality, trust and openness to share each other’s business, family and personal experiences.
