Cashflow, Cost management and Change - Revisiting your business strategy

Recent economic developments across the region - and beyond - underscore three essential areas that every business leader needs to assess in order to survive. They are Cashflow, Costs and Change. And, there's one common underlying factor between them: they all impact the bottom line of your business. So, how can you confront these dynamics to shape a better future for your business?

Etisalat - in collaboration with CPI Business - presents a day dedicated to dissecting these three Cs and helping you craft fresh strategies to combat the growing challenges.

Essentially, here's what we hope you will learn by the end of the event -

  • How to liberate your cashflow?
  • Managing debt, restructuring and turning around your business
  • Making the transition from a CAPEX to OPEX model
  • Survival strategies for a changing business climate
  • Digital Disruption – how can it make economic sense?
  • How to use data to improve financial control?
