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, 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.

Breakfast Series

As part of their Goering Center membership, Core Members receive three complimentary tickets to all programs in the Breakfast Series. New in 2020 – the Breakfast Series is open to Associate Members, Corporate Partners and non-members for $29.

Breakfasts are geared towards family and private business topics and many times a panel of business leaders share their experiences. Topics include innovation in the workplace, growth strategies, health care reform, fraud prevention and more.

Luncheon Series

Greater Cincinnati business leaders come together for an informative program covering the topics trending in the business world. You’ll hear from local CEOs, expert advisors and featured speakers, as they share their insights and perspectives on growing successful enterprises and enduring family and private businesses.

Educational Forums

Our educational forums take a deeper dive into the unique challenges that family and private businesses encounter. Subject matter experts address key issues including strategic planning, family councils, effective family communication, estate planning and wealth transfer. You’ll walk away from these interactive workshops with actionable steps to move your business and family forward.


Interactive workshops are developed specifically for adult learners who appreciate hands-on, practical application of the topics covered. Come prepared to roll up your sleeves, engage with other members and participate in activities that reinforce the theories behind the lessons.
