The Levant Family Business Podcast – Sparking Innovation In The Family Business

Episode 12 – Innovation As An Engine For Growth, A Conversation With Nicolas and Anthony Boukather.

To thrive in a competitive landscape, family businesses must be willing to adapt and change. Firms must learn to embrace innovative thinking and explore new ideas, processes and procedures in order to stay relevant and ensure success for future generations. Change, however, isn’t always easy and disrupting long-standing processes in place of new methods can often be a daunting prospect.

In this episode, we are joined by twin brothers Anthony and Nicholas Boukather from ANB Holding to share their insights and experiences on implementing innovation, embracing failure and making the necessary changes that ultimately lead to success.
