The influence of the political and regulatory environment on the CFO and COO continues to grow. The ability to navigate these changes to stay ahead strategically is a key requirement for today’s leading finance and operations teams. Come June, analysis of European parliament elections results will be added to the ongoing coverage of Brexit and the latest trade wars. What are the emerging political threats that will have greatest impact the private capital industry? How do you filter through the political noise?
Nina Schick, political commentator, broadcaster and writer will open this year’s CFO Forum. Nina specialises in how disinformation and technology are reshaping geopolitics. She most recently worked with Joe Biden, the former Vice President of the United States, and Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former Secretary General of NATO and Prime Minister of Denmark, where she was leading work on next-generation disinformation in the form of AI-generated deep fakes. Nina has worked on decisive European political campaigns and elections, including the UK's 2016 EU Referendum and Emmanuel Macron's successful bid to become French President in 2017. Drawing on her experience, Nina’s keynote will deliver timely insight on political risk and disruptive technology.
