WELCOME

Differing priorities and unique perspectives shaped by experience are just two conditions among many that create a not-so collegial relationship among members in the C-suite. The unfortunate reality is that this disagreement in approaches impacts the precision and speed at which the enterprise is able to reap the benefits of digital transformation.   

With workforce issues looming large and sustainability priorities becoming a mainstream concern, need not only guidance but an unbiased collaborative relationship between two of his most trusted partners in the enterprise: The Chief Finance Officer and the Chief Information Officer. 

In a 2022 Gartner survey, people, purpose, prices and productivity emerged as key issues for the C-suite in 2022, and looking to 2023, reflecting a radical shift in priorities not seen in 15 years but likely to represent enduring change in the mindset of CEOs.

“In 2022, the Gartner CEO and senior business executive survey showed that, catalysed by multiple macro trends and economic factors, business leaders are reprioritizing some key areas of enterprise purpose and management focus,” said Mark Raskino, distinguished VP Analyst at Gartner.

Themed “Masterplan for Success Post-Digitalisation”, C-Engage Convention 2022 is a recognition that rationalising digital transformation initiatives require a re-alignment of the many different priorities and expertise within the organisation and steering these to one goal. How we execute tactics and strategies may differ but these must all be aligned towards one goal, and executed with one voice.

At this year’s flagship event, C-ENGAGE CONVENTION 2022 will cover:

  1. Elements of a growth strategy post digitalisation
  2. Leading enterprise in the next phase of digital transformation
  3. Striking a balance in innovations in the new business order
  4. Strategies to overcome retention, efficiency, and productivity challenges of a hybrid workplace
  5. Bridging the technology divide 


CXOCIETY acknowledges that members of the C-suite have emotional biases and who doesn’t. However, by working together and arming ourselves with a better awareness of each other’s priorities, capabilities and shortcomings, we are better able to bridge the divide and achieve the business’ goals for 2023.

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

C-Engage Convention aims to give insights on driving technological transformation and on addressing pressing concerns to optimize digital investments and business performance to over 300 senior IT and finance leaders from multiple industries in the region.

KEYNOTE II: Demystifying the Intelligent Enterprise and Cloud Transformation
Organisations now recognise the importance of digitalisation and have embarked on various initiatives to push their business process transformation. For many, the way forward is the cloud as they strive for agility to scale quickly and speed up their time-to-market. While the cloud appears to be the generic answer to digital transformation, business, operations and technology leaders must carefully define the pragmatic considerations relevant to their business and develop a roadmap that will guide the organisation through their cloud journey. This session will look at the elements of successful process improvement while moving to a cloud-native operating model.

  • Why do companies still face challenges in driving business transformation and cloud adoption?
  • What are the key considerations in developing a business case and maximising the true business benefits of the cloud?
  • Which are the areas to focus on to ensure successful cloud migrations and long-term benefits?

FIRESIDE CHAT I: Adapting to Inflationary and Volatile Environments: Factoring Externalities to Drive Scenario Planning in Finance Function
Planning, budgeting and forecasting are three key pillars of enterprise performance management (EPM). The purpose of planning, budgeting and forecasting is to translate strategy into execution via long-term or mid-term plans as well as short-term budgets and forecasts.

While no organization is protected from fluctuations in inflation, interest rates, and foreign exchange (FX), organizations that use sophisticated assumptions to build scenarios are generally in better positions to prepare for possible outcomes of today’s ever evolving business landscapes. With the constant changes in the marketplace and inflationary pressures at generational highs, how should finance leaders stay on point so they are not caught off-guard?

  • Infusing adaptability and flexibility in financial and operational models
  • How to accelerate planning and budgeting process amidst unpredicted market disruptions?
  • Ensuring enterprise-wide planning outperformance with adaptability
  • Building scenarios to better prepare and adapt current operations to new realities

PANEL DISCUSSION III: Finance Function as the Driver of a Sustainable Future
Developing environmentally sustainable practices and policies can seem overwhelming, especially given the already large workload that falls on the finance team’s shoulders. Managing existing financial management and reporting requirements while adding Environmental, Social, and Corporate governance (ESG) strategy, measurement, and reporting may not seem feasible for some teams. However, with finance team’s background in risk assessment and mitigation, data analysis and reporting, and strategic direction, the finance function makes it perfect for this task.
  • ESG is a growing priority for CFOs and what does it means to CFOs and finance function?
  • Role of finance in enabling the transformation of a sustainable enterprise
  • Building a sustainable finance function
  •  Meeting the challenges in transitioning to a sustainable finance function
  • Embracing finance automation to support enterprise-wide’s ESG efforts

KEYNOTE I: Considerations for Leaders in Their Digital Transformation Journey
In the day-to-day operations of many organisations, an inordinate amount of time and effort doing work that is not directly relevant to our job functions are spent. Research by Workfront has shown that only 40% of our workday is spent on primary tasks. This has significant impact not only on the productivity of our teams but also on our ability to affect strategic decisions for future growth. 58% of us feel so swamped with daily work that we don’t have time to even think. With digital transformation, we have the opportunity to create “space” for our teams to focus on things that truly matter to deliver on our mission. This session will look at: 
  • Instilling the right corporate mind-set
  • Adopting a flexible and sustainable technology platform
  • Identifying and putting in place data-first people
  • Designing an audience-centric programme
