11th CFO Innovation Asia Forum

Developing Strategic Agility to Counter Short-term Challenges and Long-term Impacts for the Post-pandemic Recovery

TBA | Singapore

“There is no question that 2020 will be exceptionally difficult. If the pandemic fades in the second half of the year—thus allowing a gradual lifting of containment measures and reopening of the economy—our baseline assumption is for a partial recovery in 2021. But again, I stress there is tremendous uncertainty around the outlook:  it could get worse depending on many variable factors, including the duration of the pandemic….

It is this common threat that brings us all together, to harness the greatest strengths of our humanity—solidarity, courage, creativity, and compassion. We don’t know yet how our economies and way of life will change, but we do know we will come out of this crisis more resilient.”

- Confronting the Crisis: Priorities for the Global Economy, By Kristalina Georgieva, IMF Managing Director

About the Event

Given the onset of the global pandemic, which is likely to have a significant long-term impact on every aspect of the operation in corporates, what’s on the CFO agenda has shifted from focusing on the US-China Trade Tension in late 2019 to realities of managing through a downturn in 2020 and beyond. 

Finance leaders are on the corporate front line, helping their companies navigate the way forward with new approaches and agile working systems, whereas the duration of this health and economic crisis is still uncertain. Businesses around the world are relentlessly dealing with the effects of a sharp drop in economic activity and assessing the bleak economic outlook.

Faced with such swift changes in economic outlook and recessionary environment, how can finance leaders strategize for turnaround and tackle short-term business pressures, all while maintaining a long-term view? Tough decisions around costs and staffing have already been in place to make the company stay afloat, but what matters most to prepare for the future is to help people feel more prepared and informed by being transparent about the health of the company to build trust and confidence among all business stakeholders. 

Join the discussion at the 11th CFO Innovation Asia Forum, where top-tier finance industry stakeholders in the region convene and share best practices and disruptive strategies on:

  • Developing strategic agility to mitigate the impact of any disruptions and unpredictable economic scenarios
  • Harnessing technology to achieve efficiencies in finance process and remain competitive
  • Re-evaluating and updating your investment portfolio, GRC and tax risk strategies
  • Adopting green finance to generate long-term sustainable returns amid a more corporate consciousness-demanding future
  • How finance leaders could lead out of adversity and think beyond to strengthen the resilience of their organisations
