What our clients say about working with us

“Wayne Rivers provides a very practical approach to family business planning. Through his step-by-step strategic planning process, our members walked away with tools and techniques they could immediately put into use in their families and businesses. Drawing on his own experience as a business owner, and witty sense of humor, Wayne presented our attendees with great insight, transferable ideas, and several valuable resources.”

Nicole Bettinger

Operations Manager, University of Wisconsin

"Just finished our best year ever. Revenue up about 20%, profit up about 60%. Went through an extremely extensive third party audit just a few weeks ago, the highest level of most respected audit company in our industry. I was kicked out during the process (by the employees) as well as my son. I was amazed to find we scored 100%. We are far from perfect, however the auditor spent a lot of time on the floor talking to almost every employee and thought we were special. This would not have happened if we had not contacted the Family Business Institute and had them come in to work with us, and we listened. Thank you Wayne and your organization."
