When strong and inspiring women leaders build a platform to set a message where it isn’t about exclusive rights or privileges but celebrating an undaunted spirit and an indomitable will to succeed !

Thank you Shanta Vallury for the honor and love I received. Loved your message of choosing the effort over privilege ! More power to you. May you continue to build the strong leadership that you have been building at RBL Bank !!

 

Swati Datye Vani Shetty and everyone whom I met have made my day with all the love and warmth I received. Thank you so much !!

Sharing my journey was an honor with a view to how the world is emerging and where women stands in it. Talking to the team on survival strategy, to funding to every nuance of dealing the troubled times was exhilarating. As I spoke I learned more. I know many more success stories that would emerge from the bright souls I met there.

As shared by the leadership from RBL , “Keeping up the commitment of becoming a diverse and an inclusive company, RBL Bank celebrated International Women’s Day by initiating a special speaker series led by women championing different roles across corporates and as entrepreneurs.”

 “The sessions were very inspirational as the stories revolved around how the speakers embarked on a journey of their dreams and took on projects/ roles that were way above their league but it was sheer determination and passion to make it work irrespective of a lot of roadblocks along the journey. They were stories of being successful without privilege” said Shanta Vallury.

Happy to have celebrated International Women’s Day with employees at RBL Bank where I got the opportunity to share my journey – the roadblocks, the victories and failures. The session was followed by riveting conversations with the employees at the Bank where we exchanged ideas, thoughts and drew inspiration from each other.

Hats off to Shanta for building such a brave new world, where hard work and grit is preferred over privileges!

India CFO Summit 4th Edition 2019

As the GDP, it inspires us to understand our Economic Growth Story. Large corporates and companies that are changing the economy have the best of the leaders and rainmakers who are spearheading this economic growth. To understand how these leaders are impacting this change, BizIntegration successful concluded the India CFO Summit 4th Edition on 22nd February at Radission Blu GRT Chennai. Top CFOs across the nation brainstormed the evolving role of CFOs and solutions to top the challenges faced in their Business.

Over the past few years, the responsibility of the CFO has evolved extensively. CFOs are now expected to build strategic judgments on critical decisions on the outsourcing of back office functions and transformative projects. To deal with this, high-performing Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) have to play a more active role within the organization. They will have the responsibility of strategic personnel planning and continuous forecasting. They have to think beyond the stipulated perception of planning a workforce with respect to headcount budget.

CFOs are known to bring with them their expertise and analysis, and combine external and internal data in a way that helps the business strike the right equilibrium in building, obtaining and deploying talent to support the corporate strategy. This summit addressed all the challenges facing a modern CFO and the opportunities they have to lead their organizations.

The day started with Welcome note by Nabomita Mazumdar , Founder Nabomita.com followed by a keynote by Kannan R Head, Corporate Performance Monitoring & Research, Hinduja Group

Pranay Ramkrishnan,Country Head – Indian Subcontinent, Kyriba delivered a speech on The World’s #1 Cloud Platform for Finance and Treasury .  He said, “Most corporate treasury departments know when the time is right to implement a treasury management solution (TMS), and it’s no longer feasible to rely on spreadsheets as their primary treasury tool. After all, experts and analysts agree that a TMS provides significant benefits by improving overall efficiency, timesavings and control. However, the challenge lies in building the case internally to prove the benefits of adopting a TMS, and this often requires hard dollar figures in terms of either savings made or incremental added value achieved.”
