Round Table – April 2011

After having a few sessions of the SHC Round Table I noticed that many are interested in business but have no prior experience. Thus our own Francis Mangalam has come to the rescue. Francis has been in the corporate world for the past 20 years with his own company providing accounting, secretarial, corporate taxation, financial reports compilation filing with Government agencies and other related matters.

He is more than happy to share his experience of getting started in business e.g what kind of business structure, sole-proprietorship, partnership or limited company, the pros and cons of each, liablilities of partners and directors etc. In short, the nuts and bolts of business.

Do come to this session of Round Table to know more. It will not be a formal talk but a casual discussion in the manner of the previous Round Tables. Of course, SHCian already in business are welcomed too, to contribute and to network.

  3. Jeffrey/Sue,

    My apologies for not being able to attend tonight’s dinner. I have a last minute family commitment.

    So sorry
    Ros :(

  4. Although this session was meant for newbies and aspiring entrepreneurs, most of us who attended were old hands in business. Nevertheless, we all had a very fruitful evening hearing from Francis on the ins and outs business structure and organisations.

    Thanks Francis for sharing.

  5. Thanks Jeffrey & Sue for taking the lead to organise this meet. Food and place was great.

    People present were very pleasant,very cordial and the midst of this intellectual discourse.

    It would be great if more members do come & support.. cos the no of people present actually did not pay tribute to the speaker..who took pains to share..

    Looking forward to more meetings in the future.
