Emerging Leaders of Family Business

The Aster Club advocates entrepreneurship, leadership and personal development for future family business leaders — Emerging Leaders. We strongly believe that through a well-prepared generation, a family business can stay competitive and continue its legacy.

Personal development is important in today’s fast-paced unpredictable social and business environment. No matter what happens in the world, when we know who we are, what we are good at, how to manage ourselves, how to learn and how to work with others, we can manage.


The objectives of the program are:

  • To develop personal leadership qualities in terms of communication, creativity, and decision-making
  • To provide practical leadership tools that people  can easily apply in real-life situations
  • To master how to identify potential new ideas and build business models to determine the value, cost, and opportunities behind identified ideas
  • To create a personal development plan that focuses on reaching one’s full potentials

Who is it for?

The Aster Club Emerging Leaders Program is for young people age 18 to 40 years old and a future leader of a family business. It is a 5-day residential program in the beautiful coast of Croatia, starting Sunday evening and ending Friday afternoon. Our program is structured for a small group which ensures maximum participation, highly interactive discussions, and optimal learning.
