"The continued lack of clarity on economic policies may lead to increased level of anxiety among the businesses and further intensify the fear of an economic slowdown." Ipsos Business Consulting Survey on Malaysia, April, 2019
About the Event
A year after Malaysia's historic election, the public support for the new government dropped to 39% from 66% rating in August 2018, according to a survey by Merdeka Centre.
The government has made slow progress in boosting revenue and identifying new growth drivers, while saddled with debt burden and fragile fiscal balance sheet. Investor sentiments have declined, with the ringgit sliding against the dollar and equities are performing poorly. Global funds are seemingly bypassing the country in favor of other markets. At the same time, subdued demand and rising trade tensions in the region are weighing on Malaysia's export prospects and the economy.
With such concerning factors, what risk-proof strategies and policies should the CFOs employ to ensure financial resilience and business continuity? What opportunities are out there for them to leverage on, in order to stimulate new growth and reinvent business models? How can they efficiently identify optimal technological solutions to help them tide over challenges?
Join us at the 7th CFO Innovation Malaysia Forum 2019, where over 150 CFOs and senior finance executive will convene – to discuss, exchange insights and to collaborate, in steering your enterprises towards sustainability.
Who will attend?
CFOs, MDs, VPs, Directors, GMs, and Senior Managers, involved in:
The evolving c-suite dynamics are shifting to a more integrative model that demands partnerships. How can some of the successful CFOs in the region align with their counterparts to achieve business objectives?
Digitisation is now a realistic goal for the finance function because of a range of technological advances including real-time analytics, AI and machine learning. At the same time, the pace at which business is accelerating is increasing exponentially. Finance leaders are tasked to deliver new levels of business acumen across their organization in the digital world. This session takes CFOs and finance leaders on a journey to better understand the implications of business and technology trends and offers a strategy on how to drive business growth while optimizing the employee experience with intelligent finance.
Up to 50% of manual financial processes are likely to be automated in the next few years. Leveraging on the ‘Digital Workforce’ will eliminate manual tasks, streamline operations, and improve access to business data. RPA works alongside human labor to help finance organizations improve the efficiency and effectiveness of core financial processes. How will the future of Work look like? What are the benefits to the Enterprise, and more importantly, what does it mean for Humans working together with the concept of Digital workers?
• Accelerate financial close process
• Automate reconciliations and intercompany settlements
• Streamline accounts payable and invoice processing
• Enhance fraud detection
• Improve accuracy of regulatory reporting
• Consolidate and validate data from legacy systems
• Augment data testing by risk management and internal audit
The role of CFOs is fast changing. They are moving from being record keepers to becoming business partners and technocrats who envision digital transformation of enterprise functions. With the day-to-day functions of such business enablers being so dynamic how can Enterprise systems enable this? Futuristic solutions like conversational bots are about to entirely automate the plain administrative tasks. But that is just the start of transformation. Several steps ahead, the future of finance will be swayed by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which will make use of behavioral analysis to predict transactions. Now, add a bit of Anticipatory Computing to this and the results can be mind boggling. Enterprise applications are moving from being re-active to proactive by understanding patterns, intelligently predicting and automatically suggesting based on historical information instead of manual intervention. In this session, we will explore the new world of Finance and Enterprise Applications from a technopreneur’s lens.
• Closing the talent gap in finance to maximize performance
• Essential skills needed to stay ahead of the technology curve
• How to prepare for disruptive changes
Sustainability, which encompasses environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, is increasingly positioned at the top of board agendas. By fostering more proactive identification, measurement, and disclosure of ESG risks, CFOs can provide critical insight into how the company is protecting value, and in turn, drive stakeholders' confidence.
