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.

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?
  • How to accelerate planning and budgeting process amidst unpredicted market disruptions?
  • Ensuring enterprise-wide planning outperformance with adaptability
  • Implementing modern adaptive planning and budgeting to maximize financial visibility and profitability: Challenges and best practices
  • Infusing adaptability and flexibility in financial and operational models
  • How to accelerate planning and budgeting process amidst unpredicted market disruptions?

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 II: Maturing into a Transformational Finance Function in the Age of xP&A

FP&A is a cornerstone of financial management. Traditional FP&A processes provide a structured approach to budgeting, planning, forecasting and reporting for finance team’s analysis. However, other functions in the business are making plans and taking actions that can also affect an enterprise’s financial posture and future direction. As a result, less optimum operations occurred as organisations often react to changes rather than riding the opportunities.

  • Creating an agile, reliable and relevant FP&A for better visibility and decision making
  • Harnessing extended Planning & Analysis (xP&A) for the new-age FP&A
  • Integrating data, people, processes and business plans within a single platform
  • Improving the accuracy of forecasts and planning activities through FP&A, business and operational teams collaboration
    •

PANEL DISCUSSION V: Hire, Develop, Retain: Managing the Finance Talent War in 2023
As organisations remain hopeful for a better economy and return to some normalcy this year, a new crisis emerges. Workforce shortages, skilled talent turnover, tech-savvy workforce scarcity, hybrid model workplace, and displaced workforce due to the pandemic – all conspiring to frustrate CFOs and finance leaders’ strategies to improve overall company performance in 2022.
  • The great resignation and what it is like in ASEAN
  • Emerging workforce trends, changing the nature of work, evolving business requirements and other challenges for finance function in 2023
  • Recruiting and retaining finance talents in the era of mutual prosperity
  • Implementing agile workforce strategy to overcome talent shortage and skilling roadblock

KEYNOTE: Reimagining C-Suite in Today’s Data Driven World
Analysts at McKinsey predicts that by 2025, smart workflows and seamless interactions among humans and machines will likely be as standard as the corporate balance sheet, and most  employees will use data to optimize nearly every aspect of their work.  Fueled by the proliferation of data in the recent years, more senior executives inside today’s C-Suite identify data and analytics as their top investment priority. Not only that, with the rapid adoption of enterprise data analytics and the need to be a data-driven enterprise, we saw a shake-up of executive roles and responsibilities in the C-Suite. Traditional roles within the C-Suite are now joined by Chief Data Officers, Chief Customer Officer, Chief Information Security Officers, among a few.

  • Creating a transformation plan for enterprise’s future with data at its core
  • Stepping up C-Suite’s game, leadership and technology investment in driving data-driven enterprise
