We have published a new report today, ‘Critical success factors for tomorrow’s business leaders: Perspectives from the Gulf’.
This report is the first of a series that will consider the most crucial issues facing business now and in the immediate future. Following our Critical Success Factors summit in Dubai on 18 September, it builds on insights from leading CEOs, CFOs and business leaders from major national and multinational organisations, focusing on the Gulf.
The report identifies growth, leadership, and talent acquisition and retention as the three key areas on which businesses need to focus. It highlights the need for accelerating economic diversification in the region, focussing on increasing corporate governance and transparency at the top, and attracting and encouraging more home grown talent into the finance profession at the lower levels. It particularly notes the need to increase awareness of the vital role finance professionals play as strategic leaders.
