The Economist Corporate Network is launching a special series of exclusive, interactive online meetings entitled 'Global Round Table' for senior business executives in the same job functions or industries. We are leveraging our networks across nine cities from Johannesburg to Tokyo to allow members to share their knowledge and experience with their peers in other countries.
For this round we are inviting Chief Financial Officers and Finance Directors from leading multinational and local companies in Asia, Middle East and Africa to discuss how their jobs and their priorities have changed during the covid-19 pandemic.
Some of the questions we will aim to address include:
- How is the role of the CFO different in this crisis compared to the 2008 financial crash?
- Have CFOs been able to maintain their strategic focus, or are they being swamped by demands for cost-cutting and budget overhauls?
- What have been the hardest challenges for you and your teams in recent months, and what learnings can you share with your fellow CFOs?
Join us for a discussion on August 27 at 16:00-17:00 SG/HK time (17:00-18:00 TK/SK time, 12:00-13:00 UAE time, 10:00-11:00 SA time). We encourage all participants to join with their audio and video turned on in order to facilitate an engaging and stimulating discussion.
Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us.
