CIMA World President to speak on 'Leading in a downturn'

Glynn Lowth, CIMA World President, will speak to Bankers at a Breakfast meeting scheduled to be held on Tuesday, May 26 at the Ceylon Continental.

Organisations across the globe are facing uncertain and challenging times which bring with it numerous risks and opportunities at the same time.

Of all the challenges, `Finance' tends to take top priority.

Thus it is a pleasure for CIMA to be associated with the Bankers Club of Sri Lanka to share a few thoughts and insights on "Leading in a downturn".

Glynn, with his immense practical experience gained in Industry and Finance whilst working at major multinational companies which have seen many paradigm shifts in their markets, is well suited to speak on how businesses can deal with the challenges in a downturn, the importance of managing risk through the business cycle and identifying and capitalizing on the opportunities that arise.

He will also address the vital skills required to deliver strategy and explain some of the tools CIMA has developed to help organisations drive successful strategies.

CIMA, Regional Director of South Asia and Middle East, Bradley Emerson, commenting on the programme said: "We are well aware of the current economic downturn has had on the performance of several banks worldwide, who were thought to be `Too Big to Fail'.

No doubt Banks in Sri Lanka too are faced with very challenging times to drive the local economy which is export dependent for its markets.

In this background the topic "Leading in a downturn" is most appropriate.

The Vice President of The Bankers Club, Rajendra Theagarajah said "We are indeed privileged to have a resource person in the calibre of Glynn Lowth speak to us on a topic that is extremely timely and no doubt we will be richer and wiser as a result.

The response for the breakfast meeting has been overwhelming, which is indicative of the importance we Bankers attach to learning from Finance specialists who have practical experience in running industries in challenging times".
