Family Business Research: How do Boards create value in family firms?


QUT Masters of Philosophy Student, Matthew Dunstan is conducting a study into when and how boards enhance (or erode) financial performance in family business and we need your help! We are surveying owners and senior executives of non-listed, family firms to help us investigate this important question.

Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey. Your input will provide a valuable contribution to this project and the findings may lead to improved guidance for business owners.

Participants will be offered a copy of the benchmarking report from the study (available mid-2022), showing how their firm compares and performs against their peers.

Further information can be obtained by contacting Matthew Dunstan on 07 3138 6611 or by email:
