  • New Age Grooming for Professionals

A Boardroom Simulation -- Live! Corporate Strategy Beyond the Crisis

Friday, 26 March 2021 
3.00 p.m. - 4.30 p.m.

The business today is a continual change that faces constant threats – more so in current pandemic times where companies are seeking to turn massive complexities into meaningful change through effective strategies. Still, there are not enough debates in the corporate world about what strategy really means; and the development and execution of a corporate strategy is now seen to be a board’s most important function – a key source of differentiation between companies.

So why is this exercise often challenging in practice?

Over the last decade, many corporate boards have sought a more substantial role for directors in the strategy-setting process. Furthermore, directors are facing increased calls from other stakeholders, including management and investors, to be more deeply involved in setting strategy. Some argue that strategy is a CEO-only role; and, on the flip side, there is a great deal of confusion among boards as to what they should and should not do when it comes to participating in strategy-setting. As a result, many boards often find themselves acting as nothing less than a rubber stamp of the CEO, whilst others find themselves in conflict with the management when they take on a more active role.

Often in the course of such conversations, board directors discover that many difficulties in strategy deliberations stem from the lack of a common vocabulary. The fact is, some boards may be lacking the appropriate expertise to deal with strategy in the modern environment; they may also lack the capacity to master the variety of strategic approaches that are required today.

At this session, our diverse panel will examine and deliberate on the ‘enhanced’ role of directors in relation to strategy in 6 key areas:

  • Defining the notion of strategy and what it means to you and the organisation
  • Balancing and exploring the different possible roles boards might play – supervision, co-creation or support or a combined role
  • Implementing stronger board dynamics that foster effective debates that will result in good decisions and actions
  • Dedicating more time to strategy, looking at strategy work as an iterative process, not a big bang or one-off event
  • Developing the right facilitation skills – keeping strategy discussions strategic and focused
  • Leveraging on external perspectives and integrating ‘outside’ voices into the strategic process

The session will start off with a virtual board simulation, based on a board corporate strategy meeting. The panel speakers will be designated specific roles, and will contribute to the boardroom deliberation on a particular strategy agenda. After the simulation, the panel will discuss what went well and wrong, touch on some best practices, as well as tips and guidance in increasing the value of the board, where it can be an effective partner of the management to guide the company’s future direction.

In Conversation with Jesus Estanislao, Ph.D: Realising the Value of Corporate Governance in ASEAN

Wednesday, 24 March 2021 
3.00 p.m. - 4.30 p.m.

Before Covid-19, ASEAN was on track to become the fourth-largest economy in the world by 2030. The pandemic has caused prolonged socio-economic disruptions in the region, exposing fundamental weaknesses and vulnerabilities in various sectors.

It is therefore vital to have good governance to strengthen ASEAN’s solidarity and unity, and the region must now prioritise several key actions to ensure sustainable and resilient growth, forging deeper collaborations, expanding connectivity, and investing in a sustainable future to ensure a positive Covid-exit.

A convergence of good CG practices will be key to the cohesiveness and responsiveness of the region towards this crisis and beyond. Corporate boards in Asia must accelerate their move towards stronger collective board leadership, greater diversity, more active engagements with key stakeholders, and advocate for an environment of continuous improvement through evaluation and development initiatives.

PowerX: Building the Mindsets of Tomorrow

Tuesday, 23 March 2021 
10.00 a.m. - 11.00 a.m.

The Entrepreneurial Board: Governance under Disruption – Erika Lucas

How entrepreneurial is your board? When was the last time you checked to see how entrepreneurial your board really is? Join us as we talk to Erika Lucas about the entrepreneurial skills and qualities that got us to launch and scale, but often fade away if we don’t continue to condition them.

 

Transformational Knowledge & Mindshifts – Randy Black

The need for organisations to truly transform themselves is greater today than perhaps ever before. The cumulative effect of the global Covid-19 pandemic have been as dramatic as the impact of the steam engine on manufacturing, the invention of the telephone on communications, the invention of the car on transportation, the creation of the Internet on information sharing, and 9/11 on travel security.

Many organisations have embraced this transformation as an opportunity, rather than waiting on the sidelines for the status quo of 2019 to return. Those who are simply going through the motions may find themselves becoming the “buggy-whip companies” of the past left behind by new technologies and new ways of working. True transformation begins in the boardroom. It begins with directors evolving their view, their skills, and not allowing their legacy to hinder them from creating a new tomorrow.

Collaboration in the Boardroom: Behavioural and Relationships

Monday, 22 March 2021 
3.00 p.m. - 4.00 p.m.

The quality of relationships and behaviours of board members underpin a high performing board and their ability to balance oversight and support effectively. They also enable a board to benefit from diversity of thought and at the same time to manage differing objectives and personalities to successfully achieve alignment on what matters most.

In this session, we look at the fundamentals of the relationships between the board and the management and the behavioural characteristics of high-performing board members. We will look at how they manage key relationships for maximum impact and how they build their power and influence with colleagues on the board as well as with the management and with other key stakeholders.

We will also cover some of the ways to manage those tricky situations where there is either a little or a lot of board disharmony.

Digital Health: Is the euphoria justified?

Friday, 11 December 2020
3.30 p.m. – 4.30 p.m. CET / 9.30 a.m. – 10.30 a.m. EST

On the eve of Universal Health Coverage Day (UHC), join us for a look at the key findings of our upcoming report, 'Digital Health: Is the euphoria justified?', on the role of insurers in scaling up digital health solutions, followed by a discussion on the role of digital health in supporting healthcare for all.

Speakers:
• Adrita Bhattacharya-Craven, Director Health & Ageing, The Geneva Association
• Saira Ghafur, Digital Health Lead, Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London
• Achim Regenauer, Chief Medical Officer, PartnerRe Moderator:
• Pamela Corn, Director of Communications, The Geneva Association

The United Nations proclaimed 12 December as UHC day – a day dedicated to voice and action to advance the need for fair and quality healthcare for all by 2030. Yet vast amounts of healthcare needs are unmet and over half the global population still lack access to basic health services. As many as 100 million people are impoverished annually because of out-of-pocket payments for healthcare. All of this, coupled with the ongoing pandemic, rise in chronic illnesses and squeezed public budgets, means that health needs are unlikely to be met solely by a bricks and mortar health system.

Digital health is seen by many as a solution, able to accelerate access to affordable care and services from both providers and payers like insurers. The pivot towards digital health during the COVID-19 pandemic has been remarkable, but will it really help to advance the UHC agenda?

The webinar will address the following questions:
• What does the mass market for digital health offer and is the market easy for users to navigate?
• What do we know about the effect of digital health on health behaviour and outcomes?
• How can insurers add value in implementing digital health solutions at scale?
• What are the opportunities for using digital health as a coherent tool to achieve UHC and what steps are academics and insurers taking to harness them?

This event is part of our #RiskConversations webinar series.

Evolutionary Change to Revolutionary Impact - Reimagining a New World Post Covid-19

Wednesday-Thursday, 18-19 November 2020
9.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m. 

COVID-19 has stirred and shaken the global economy to its core. Many economies have experienced sudden and unprecedented economic upheavals. This crisis has necessitated huge business mind-set changes. It will speed up industry and value chain reforms towards agility, scalability and automation. In this new global business era only businesses with the right leadership will be better positioned as the new post-pandemic winners. Corporate leaders of global capital markets know all too well that their businesses will always be challenged by geo-political tensions, trade wars, changing investor preferences and investor demographics, climate change, disruptive digital technologies and now, pandemic viruses. They expect their businesses to evolve and recognise the need to continue changing the way their businesses will continue to interact and influence customers.

In a new world environment characterised by evolutionary change and revolutionary impact, business foresight thinkers sense that we are moving into a completely new business world era that requires new mind-sets and strategies that can adapt to a whole new way of doing business where only those brands that can adopt new ideas and adapt to changing political, economic and business landscapes will surge ahead of their competitors. At this conference we will consider the key elements and drivers of the industry digital evolution and assess its revolutionary impact to economies, business practices, investors attitudes and society.

Changing Perspectives - Addressing Climate - Related Risks in the Financial Sector

Wednesday, 20/5/2020
9:00 am to 11:00 am

Climate change is increasingly recognized as an important source of risk for financial institutions and investors. Climate-related risks arise through two primary channels: physical risks and transition risk. Physical risks arise from climate and weather-related events, which can potentially result in large financial losses and impaired asset values. Transition risk stems from the process of adjusting to a low-carbon economy, risking losses related to government policies such as the introduction of carbon prices, border adjustment taxes or related to climate-related litigation. Policy makers, central banks, financial sector regulators and supervisors are strengthening their response to enhance the financial sector’s resilience to climate risks and mobilize capital for green finance. They are increasingly promoting the disclosure of climate risks and have taken actions in identifying, assessing and monitoring the climate risks in financial system.
The objectives of this Webinar are to share with the participants:

  • the recent assessment of the impacts of climate change on financial systems in emerging markets and developing economies;
  • the global trends and supervisory actions taken to manage these risks through stress testing, risk management, governance and disclosure guidance, and integrating climate risks in supervision;
  • international initiatives to support all these efforts at national level incl. NGFS, FSB TCFD, World Bank/IMF;
  • country experience in assessing climate risks and developing guidance to financial industry on risk management and stress testing (UK and Colombia).
