Planning 'key to avoiding turmoil'.
MANAMA: Turbulence in financial markets has always existed and those who succeed have planned well in advance to tackle the tough times, an expert has said.
Indian software giant Infosys former chief financial officer and board member Venkatraman Balakrishnan said this in an address to Bahrain's leading financial professionals taking part in Bahrain Chapter of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (BCICAI).
Forensic audit expert Chetan Dalal, Emirates NBD chief financial officer Surya Subramanian, Union Bank of India chairman and managing director Arun Tiwari, former ICAI chairman Amarjit Chopra, and international taxation expert T P Ostwal were the other experts who spoke during the event at the Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, Residence and Spa.
A special feature was a one-hour presentation by Indian leadership training guru Satish Mandora.
"This is the flagship event of BCICAI and the high number of participants throughout the programme was in itself a testament to the quality of the eminent speakers who enthralled the audience," BCICAI chairman Meenakshi Sundaram said.
