Event Details

If the global investment landscape of 2019 is to be summarised into just a single word, it would be "uncertainty".

Companies pay a high price when uncertainty increases. It reduces economic activity and consumer demand, as firms and households delay investment and consumption.

But perhaps even more critically, uncertainty can paralyse corporate decision-making. Indeed, uncertain times can test - and reveal - the quality of an organisation's leadership. The best leaders know how to keep moving forward in ambiguous situations, and how to act decisively in the face of unknown outcomes.

How can leaders transform their organisations through turbulent and volatile times? How can CxOs build resilient, purpose-driven firms that can emerge as winners in the face of market disruption? How should CxOs be planning for opportunities as new risks surface?

Azran Osman-Rani, former CEO and Group COO of iflix and founding CEO of Air Asia X, believes that the world is changing so fast that business leaders cannot be too methodological and rigid in their planning, and instead to be prepared to adapt and change course when the situation warrants it.

Join us for this exclusive workshop as we invite Azran to share how he has challenged traditional management approaches. We also discuss how leaders should be adapting their own management styles, and the way they operate, in the face of an accelerating pace of change.

Note: This meeting is limited to CEOs or equivalent heads of an organisation - one per company.
