14 May 2012

bf


The third installment of the NUS Business School Alumni Association's CEO Breakfast Talk Series was held on 14 May 2012 at Marina Mandarin Hotel and was well attended by 130 participants. Alumni, staff/faculty members and guests were treated to an engaging session with Mr Terry O'Connor, CEO of Courts Asia.

In this event titled "Courts - Our Turnaround Story and Beyond", Mr O'Connor presented the successful journey of Courts over the last few decades - from a traditional furniture-centric business in the 1970s to being today's leading retailer of home and IT solutions in both Singapore and Malaysia. He provided valuable insights into the company's strategy over the years.

The event provided participants with real-life perspectives on how a company went through a phase of successful change to become the business it is today. With today's competitive and unpredictable business landscape, the importance of adapting to change was a great lesson learned for those present.
