On 3 April 2014, CGIO organised a roundtable on the theme “Governance and Networks of Family Firms”. The event attracted about 50 participants who were owners, leaders, board members or successors of family businesses, as well as experts of the field.
Prof Dr Till Talaulicar and Associate Professor Chung delivered their academic presentations "Governance Standards for Family Firms" and "Family Relationships and Firm Performance" respectively. Thereafter, an invigorating panel discussion ensued with the distinguished panelists. All panelists shared with the audience their personal anecdotes and best practices on how they managed and grew their family business. Participants attended the post-roundtable networking session, and continued discussing the challenges raised and debated during the roundtable.
