The long term success of a family ultimately rests with the ability of the younger generation to find its place and voice whilst also continuing the family legacy.   To do this, the next generation need to explore opportunities, develop knowledge and learn the tools they need in a safe network of peers.

Our open workshops and bespoke programmes take place in the UK and overseas.  They provide the opportunity for family members to expand their experiences, increase their knowledge, grow in confidence and develop international peer networks.

Examples of programmes include:

Family relationships and wealth dynamics

The long term success of a family ultimately rests with the ability of the younger generation to find its place and voice so that it can continue with the family legacy while also stewarding and creating further wealth.

Life Masters

The Longbow Life Masters’ Programme is a highly engaging and interactive five-day programme focused on self-awareness, strategy, problem solving, decision making, communication, entrepreneurism, philanthropy, team work and resilience.

‘I had a fabulous time and was actually rather sad when it ended. It was so lovely to be with such a caring, generous and warm hearted group of people – both the facilitators/coaches as well as the participants. That feeling of connection and community which normally takes so long to build up over a coffee here or there was fast tracked over those few days and I feel I have left with a most valuable a support network!’

Overseas volunteering opportunity

Stepping into the unknown can be disorienting.  It can challenge one’s values, sense of self and the ability to adapt.  Longbow Overseas Learning programmes allow individuals to get out of their day to day lives and familiar routines and open their minds to different perspectives, new possibilities and growth.  Programmes include opportunities to test skills and talents, hone leadership and communication skills,  test their character and maturity and develop networks
