SNIPEXX, Performance and Sales Academy went beyond its usual agenda to help gather insights and inspire Sri Lankan business executives and entrepreneurs by conducting a business brainstorming session through a panel of proven entrepreneurs imparting to a packed and attentive audience at the Balmoral Hall, Kingsbury Hotel on 24 June.

The event was fully subscribed with over 400 key decision makers of industries, from CEOs, C-Level officers and management team members who were challenged to delve outside of their comfort zones to adapt and adopt to the chaotic environment post 21 April.

The brainstorming was moderated by Yasas Hewage, (Sales Coach at SNIPEXX) with the objective to build a renewed appreciation to risk, issue and crisis management and infuse the need for scenario planning vs. liner traditional planning within the corporate community of Sri Lanka. The discussions were enriched by the distinguished panel which included Sarinda Unamboowa (MD/CEO – MAS Kreeda), Shiromal Cooray (Chairperson – Jetwing Travels), Otara Gunawardena (Founder ODEL Plc and Embark), Rajendra Thiyagarajah (MD/CEO, Cargills Bank) and Dr. Nushad Perera (Chief of Digital Services – Dialog Group), through vivid examples of real-life experiences and diverse views to help take learnings to navigate the current context.
