What stands in the way of your company’s expansion into the lucrative growth markets of Asia? What stops companies that are already in a market in Asia from expanding into a neighbouring country?

This MGBF Roundtable will feature thought leaders from Japan, Australia, Singapore and Malaysia dealing with the critical issues of manipulation of public listed companies and government and their financial impacts.

The simple reality is that it is fear, fear of the unknown. The real question in this age of data and generative AI is how to make Asia more accessible to business leaders in real-time and in a focused manner that builds business results quickly.

Critical Questions:

  1. How can the media be manipulated by threat actors and business competitors to impact supply chains and share prices of public listed companies?
  2. How does effective business intelligence have a positive impact on the decision-making process of CEOs in a crisis and before an issue becomes public?
  3. How susceptible are governments and government departments to manipulation and how does this impact decision-making and policy decisions?  
  4. How reliable are Ready-to-use business intelligence reports about a person or company?
  5. Is there an effective way to move towards ESG in an organisation and how to avoid the pitfalls of greenwashing?
