The seminar will run from 7:30-9 a.m. and will be led by Dr. John Schoen, visiting lecturer in management and entrepreneurship at Baylor. The program is titled "Heart, Head and Hands: Keys to Sustaining Competitive Advantage in Family Enterprises."

He also teaches in the industrial distribution program at Texas A&M University and at the Caruth Institute for Owner-Managed Business at SMU. He is a co-director of the Family & Owner-Managed Business Program at Texas A&M.

The 1998 Waco Family Business Seminar Series was planned by the Institute for Family Business specifically for family-owned firms in the Waco area.
