What’s next in the world of finance?
Pankaj Kabra
Senior Vice President Finance, Traveloka
"Lines between the CFO, CIO, CTO and COO functions will continue to blur. This will create massive opportunities for the Finance function to move up the value chain."
What’s next in the world of finance?
Raymund C. Berja
Regional Chief Financial Officer & Head of Tax, Compliance and Procurement, AirAsia
"Finance leaders must be willing to embrace digital tools, innovation and cultural change. Skills alone cannot help someone to excel, thrive and transform. You get to where you aspire to be with the help and empowerment of people around you."
What’s next in the world of finance?
Jasmine Chung
Vice President of Finance, Tabsquare
"The challenge would be to keep up with critical business actions happening at a faster pace. Getting sufficient context would allow Finance to interpret data and maximize the value created. Finance will need to be closely integrated with the business, actively informed or involved in key business decisions, finance or non-finance."
