leaders of tomorrow

Did you know that family businesses account for two-thirds of all businesses around the world, generating a GDP of 80-85 per cent? Even so, majority of family businesses fail to sustain beyond the second generation, with only a mere precious few making it to the fourth generation. With our theme revolving around legacy, we speak to five second-generation business owners to find out how they are faring with their family businesses. Are they steering the company in the right direction and keeping up with the times? What did they learn from their parents and what is their mindset in running the business? Turn to page 158 and see how Natalie Cheng (Parkson Group), Melissa Sin (SKB Shutters), Garvy Beh (BP Healthcare), Melissa Tan (Getha) and Jim Tan (T7 Global) are doing…

Even before the doors to Colony Star Boulevard opened at 9am, Melissa Sin had arrived bright and early at 8.30am. We were even more shocked when she divulged that she was hospitalised the day before for a terrible bout of coughing; she had requested for special release from the doctor to come to our shoot. “Anything for Malaysia Tatler—I already made a promise,” says the executive director of SKB Shutters, as our makeup team started prepping her face with a range of Giorgio Armani Beauty products. Next to arrive was Getha’s Melissa Tan, who generously brought nasi lemak for breakfast for all of us to eat. The two girls (who have mutual friends in common) started bonding during hair and makeup. They eventually welcomed our third talent, Natalie Cheng from Parkson…

a vision to behold

World Sight Day, which was first initiated in 2000, aims to raise awareness on blindness and vision impairment among members of society. This outstanding effort in global eye care has been driven by watch brand Omega together with Orbis International, and includes the function of a ‘flying eye hospital’—an ophthalmic medical and teaching facility located on board an MD-10 aircraft. Healthcare professionals are flown to developing communities in need of vision restoration. Apart from backing Orbis, Omega even launched a number of watches, of which sales proceeds fund Orbis. Closer to home, L’Occitane launched the Fight Against Avoidable Blindness drawstring pouch set in stores nationwide to support blindness prevention. And the brand will donate 100 per cent of the proceeds from the sales to sight saving projects.…

MAKING A SCENE At an intimate gathering-cum-charity drive, a guest was throwing a fit, and demanding to be properly waited on while the host was giving a toast to the generous attendees. A fleeting dread was seen on the host’s face and obvious glances were exchanged among others present, as the guest loudly complained about the lack of seats, and the size of the venue. BUT FIRST... A man was left baffled at a wedding when he was abandoned in the middle of a catchup with a long-known friend. His companion was constantly being pulled away by his socialite girlfriend who wanted to take a picture for her essential social media update while ignoring her partner’s many, “Not now!” requests. How inconsiderate of her to make her inconsequential needs an absolute priority.…
