Without the benefit of websites, social media and other technology that is the basis of much of today’s branding and communication strategies, Glick leveraged her networking skills to create a pipeline of new clients while helping to nurture a culture of high retention as well. Based on her years of experience working with families in business, Glick addresses the challenges and opportunities facing family business leaders, identifying the key characteristics that lead to success.

Working with family businesses throughout her entire career, Glick has become well known in the middle-market family-business community, assisting with leadership training, strategic planning, marketing and networking. As a result of her community involvement, Glick was inducted into the NJ Business Hall of Fame in 2017, and in 2016 was given the NJBIZ Lifetime Achievement Award.

Over the years, she has received numerous honors and has served and continues to serve on several boards throughout New Jersey.

Seating is limited for Tuesday’s event. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to Beth Lippman, LACC executive director, at info@livingstonchambernj.com by Monday, Jan. 22.
