G. Li & Company Ltd (GliCo) is a premier and private governance and management consulting practice, founded by Prof. Gregg Li and have been supported by Professors Alfred Ho, Charles Foley, Gordon Redding, Robert Tricker and many others since 1991. We assist troubled family dynasties, rapidly growing firms, and unfocused NGOs. Our clientele have run the gamut from largely family offices and family boards, rapidly growing start-ups for the 3Gs, to philanthropic organizations. These have often been the toughest entities to govern.
Everything we do, will be guided by these values and principles....
Designing Your New Family Council....
Designing a firm yet flexible architecture for scalable decision-making, yet be mindful of growth and change, is critical to your family's sustainability, viability, and legacy.
Determining What Matters....
What gets measured gets done! Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
Preparing Sons & Daughters to Solve Innovative Challenges ...
Creating internal performance engineering teams and directors to solve company-wide challenges with professional tools can work wonders. GE does it. Why can't you?
What are some of the best ways for your new family board to learn while contributing to the growth of your family business? Innovation comes from collaboration, from learning from mistakes made, and from rapid market testing. Is your Patriarch still teachable? That is, can he still learn?How should we engage and keep independent non-executive directors?What's more important? Family or the business being run by the family? How do we remove incompetent family directors?
Global Family Advisors
Our team of global advisors ensures we are able to bring global best practices to the local markets. Many are former consultants at G. Li & Company, professors at leading business schools, or retired professionals.

Joining G. Li & Company
Since our establishment, we have always hired young, bright, interns and groom them on their journey. Competition for a few opening each year is extremely intense and in all cases, a series of face-to-face interviews plus assessment center is a normal requirement. Since 1991 we have groomed over 50 angels.
Establishing Your Own Innovation Academy
A few families want to set up their own Academy. To do this, we work together and with leading design/business schools, to shape creative minds capable of launching new ventures. We have to begin at the Board of Directors level. This is because the fire of innovation burns brighter and lasts longer when it is started from within...and from the top, fuelled from below.
