The No Rubber Stamps Dad’s Club: Meaningful Conversations with Your Daughter’s Fiancé

Rate This Session

February 14 at Noon ET / 11:00am CT (60 minutes)

Guest Speaker: Jason K. Dodd, Managing Partner, Fairlane Funds

Host: Jeff Savlov, President, Blum & Savlov, Inc., Family Business Consulting

Jason Dodd is a Tiger 21 member in Dallas and Jeff Savlov, a PPI member, spoke to his group about raising children in the context of family financial success. Jason privately approached Jeff for a conversation about how he handled his daughter’s fiancé asking for her hand in marriage. Jason shared his process of a deep “marathon” conversation covering a wide range of topics typically avoided when dads give a rubber stamp to a marital request. Invited to a PPI webinar, Jason will share his direct, thoughtful, transparent, and sensitive approach to having this conversation and how he and a group of dads came together to support one another about having more purposeful conversations with those seeking to marry their daughters. Jason and Jeff hope to expand the conversation with attendees on this webinar to include the scenario of a female partner marrying the son of a financially successful family.
