This webinar explores historical and modern challenges in the death care industry, drawing lessons from funeral directors. Reflecting on my experiences as the son and nephew of funeral directors from the 1930s to the 80s, I delve into the intersection of partner relationships/family life and the death care profession. Topics include:

  • Enriching professional interactions through family relationships
  • Community engagement and marketing strategies
  • Addressing funeral directors' interactions with grief

The presentation is based in part on Kevin's book Two Floors Above Grief. The book is available at Amazon in Paperback, Kindle, and Audio formats. To support your local communities, the book is also available in bookstores or for ordering.
