about the event

As the COVID-19 pandemic progressed in India and across the globe, it shook economic foundations and significantly impacted business operations. The transformative nature of this health crisis embedded the need to assess the business implications, strengthen business resilience and foster agility.

At a time like this, CFOs have a crucial role to play in mitigating financial risks, curbing costs and managing liquidity to maintain continuity.

At this summit, we bring together India’s top CFOs to deliberate on how to revive and reinvent the wheel for businesses going forward. They will reveal the challenges they faced and the strategies they deployed to safeguard the business, manage cash-flow effectively, and the long-term plans they built to future-proof the business and ensure consistent financial growth.
