THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
THE 1st EAST AFRICAN CEOs ROUNDTABLE
THEME: Driving change through innovation, technology, and effective leadership skills for CEOs
7th December 2021
Hilton Hotel, Nairobi
Time: 7.00am to 12.00pm
CEOs are charged with the responsibility of ensuring optimal strategic planning and business model re-engineering processes are carried out during and post the pandemic and thus it is very important for them to deeply understand how to navigate the risk -return hurdle when undertaking critical business decisions and how to set smart targets and ensure their accomplishment.
Frequent data breaches and cyber security attacks have left organizations exposed to both Financial and Reputational risks that require a unified cyber-attack aversion approach by management and the board. While growth and cost management remain a key priority for most organizations there is an overarching concern over the need to place technology enablement in the priority list with the realization that decisions in the new age of a digital workplace will be data driven.
As the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic are being realized, it is a critical time for CEOs to develop the necessary skills that would necessitate the development of resilient return to work plans as well as strengthen the internal controls for the organizations they oversee. The seminar will provide an avenue for CEOs to share knowledge and key lessons on critical governance aspects regarding the main strategic priorities for businesses in the region during the recovery period.
An ever changing and complex labor market driven by external factors like economic trends and changing demographics continues to present a challenge in retaining talent and offering psychological safety to the workforce. Generational gaps in the workforce and demand for flexibility in HR practices by the younger generation present another complexity in workforce engagement calling for continuous review of how companies attract and retain top talent in an ever-changing labor market.
The round table has been designed to provide an opportunity for CEOs to share experiences and ideas on the various dilemmas and opportunities as presented above.
The roundtable is geared to focus on the following key topics:
1. Driving change through innovation and technology
2. Risk Management- Risk appetite and the risk- return hurdle
