Sharon Naidoo, CFO
TransUnion

New Game New Rules: Is the CFO the Chief Ethics Officer?

Mike Ngoma, Director: Financial Services
DHS
Imre Nagy, Acting CEO
The Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors
Yota Baron, CFO

2020, a new decade, filled with optimism, new direction and big plans. Except, instead of that, we dealt with a once-in-100-years pandemic that changed growth plans into survival mode. But many companies made it through, learnt lessons and emerged stronger - what can we learn from them?
