ALL chapters of the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) in the Middle East collaborated to hold the professional organisation’s first-ever e-conference recently.
Under the theme ‘Global Finance Professionals’ 5R Approach to Navigate through the Pandemic’, the ongoing webinar series tackled ways to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and adapt to the changes brought about by the prevailing situation.
The e-conference kicked off over the weekend with a session on ‘Financial Impact of COVID-19 and its Effect on Financial Professionals’ hosted by PICPA Doha. Resource speaker from Qatar Greg Loayon discussed how COVID-19 impacted businesses all over the world and its impact on the global financial system. Similarly, he detailed the impacts of COVID-19 on the business strategy, employees, customers, operations, technology, industries and finance.
On the latter part of the first webinar series, Loayon presented the list of professional roles considered to be stable, new roles that are predicted to be in demand and redundant roles that are expected to be removed.
The Doha hosted event was followed by a webinar series led by PICPA Bahrain on the topic related to the Truths Revealed in the Time of Crisis, which focused more on developing and improving soft skills.
Resource speaker Eric Mauricio guided the participants in knowing what the essentials during the time of crisis are. He also reinforced the ultimate value of life and the purpose that people must have to serve.
The last part of the series will be conducted by PICPA Dubai to be led by Lyndon Magsino, on July 3 on the topic about Global Business Strategy and Leadership.
