Introduction

The Covid-19 Pandemic has proven to be a historic challenge to most organizations across the world.  All sectors of the global economy have been disrupted and this has severely impacted the initially sound business models and threatening the survival of many companies within a very short time. In the face of this momentous crisis, companies require to be agile and quick in building resilience by tactically pursuing quick recovery strategies, despite the volatile business environment that is frantically struggling to get back to stability.

With a better understanding of the effects of the pandemic in the region and across the globe, it is now time for Business Leaders supported by well-informed CFOS to craft a sound return to profitability model for the various entities impacted negatively by the pandemic.

The forum discussants will share experiences in strengthening liquidity positions, intervention for better working capital management and role of digital transformation in pivoting the already stressed business models past the adverse effects of the pandemic. Top in the list of priority items is the hot topic on how CFOs and business leaders can future proof their business and profit models by taking concrete strategic actions now in preparation for a potentially disrupted future.

The forum proceedings will also cover a forward-looking discussion on megatrends that will impact the financial performance of businesses and point towards the possible solutions to the depressed revenues and profits arising from the pandemic.
