On 14 – 16 April 2015 in Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong, nearly 2000 top bankers and other professionals from all over the world are going to congregate to discuss the future of finance in business and society. I am speaking in two panels –  the opening leadership dialogue around 9.30 or so:

The Supply Chain & Financial Performance Conference Opening Keynote Session

Welcome keynote Foo Boon Ping, Managing Editor, The Asian Banker

Opening keynote Alan Bollard, Executive Director, APEC Leadership dialogue

Global supply chain amidst changing economies Rapid increase in trade has occurred both in goods and in services. Though at the current stage, the trends of globalization and the commodity cycle seems to be declining. Gone are the days of double digit growths and replaced by a more modest and sustainable one. Why has this happened and how is this affecting the global supply chain?

  • Multilateralism and trade regionalization against the global backdrop
  • Reducing barriers: Challenges arise from the trade shift to a low cost but more protectionist country?
  • The consequence of competitiveness rebalancing for countries around the world

Speakers/panellists:

Robert Yap, Executive Chairman, YCH Group

Paul Bradley, Chairman and CEO, Caprica International

Vivek Sood, Chairman and Managing Director, Global Supply Chain Group Moderator:

Foo Boon Ping, Managing Editor, The Asian Banker

 

I am also speaking at 15.30 on another topic:

How banks and financial institution are disconnected from their clients Post the great financial crisis, clients have moved rapidly to re-configure their business models into B2B networks of supply chains. Most banks and financial institutions have totally missed this rapid transformation and are struggling to stay relevant in the modern supply chain context.

  • What are the key points of failure?
  • Why are clients unhappy with the banks?
  • What can banks do to recover their position as a trusted advisor in the modern supply chain context?

Featuring: Vivek Sood, Chairman and Managing Director, Global Supply Chain Group

 

Here is a short one minute video introduction to my speech: If you are already attending the summit, or are interested in these topics – I look forward to seeing you at the summit.
