The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Sri Lanka will hold its annual flagship conference, the CIMA Business Leaders’ Summit, on 28 and 29 August, at the Hotel Shangri-La, Colombo. 

It is undeniable that today, businesses need to embrace digital initiatives to expand or build capabilities which are innovative, efficient and sustainable. The move from insight to impact requires commitment from all stakeholders starting from adoptability of different skill sets, open mind for transformation, change management and a keen eye for innovation.
