Day 1 | Thursday, December 15th
The power and importance of strategy to business success is well understood. Good strategies are always “stupidly” obvious, after the fact. So, why are most firms and business executives so bad at strategy? Our conversation will be on the difference between good strategy and bad strategy; and how to tell the difference.
Day 2 | Friday, December 16th
Businesses all over the world are entering a new age of innovation and growth—and the pace of change is accelerating. Our panelists will share their experiences and their expectations of changes yet to come.
Supply chain disruptions of the past few years due to trade wars, COVID-19 pandemic, flooding, the war in Ukraine, and economic sanctions have severely challenged the just-in-time inventory practices developed over the past decade. Our panelists will share their ideas on how firms are becoming more supply chain resilient, while still maintaining competitive cost structures.
The integration of digital technology into all areas of a business is fundamentally changing how firms operate and deliver value to customers. Our panelists will share their experiences on what has worked best for their firms
Moderator: Arif Ansari
As it becomes ever more obvious that climate change is disrupting world weather patterns and causing major loss of life and economic damage, what are some of the best things that firms can profitably do to become more environmentally responsible and more climate-resilient?
The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the nature of the workplace and the “delivery” modes of education. Our panelists will discuss their experiences with these changes and the likely future trends.
Due to trade frictions between China and the U.S. and China’s COVID-19 lockdown policies, more firms are considering moving some of their operations outside of China. Our panelists will discuss some of the opportunities for doing this in Southeast Asia and India, as well as some of the challenges of trying to make such major changes in their operations.
What are some important financing and investment opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region as more companies focus on ESG factors and more governments require firms to become more sustainable and encourage firms to produce renewable energy?
As the number of business stakeholders concerned with ESG factors continues to grow —investment funds, customers, and employees, what are some of the “best practices” for firms to follow?
Day 3 | Saturday, December 17th
Digital transformation and the globalization of investment funds are creating more opportunities for entrepreneurs. Our panelists will discuss some of these new opportunities, as well as some of the new challenges faced by entrepreneurs.
As a result of inflation, contractionary Central Bank policies, China’s COVID-19 lockdowns, and the continuing war in Ukraine, the IMF forecast is for slower economic and trade growth in 2023. Our panelists will discuss the implications of this slowdown for Asia-Pacific economies.
