2021: The “new birth” of the 21st century

Madrid, December 17, 2020.-   It’s being said that the 21st century was born on the morning of  Tuesday 11th of September 2001 with the four coordinated terrorist attacks against the United States. Today, 20 years after the attacks we might see that 2021 bring us a totally new 21st century. No-one and nothing including AI (Artificial Intelligence) knows when and how the COVID-19 pandemic will come to an end but not soon. If today, after 12 years of the 2008 financial crisis we are still feeling its effects, it might very well be that the consequences of the Coronavirus could extend for the next 10-20 years which is just the period for the current generation of CEOs to start thinking and managing our retirement. However, I am of the opinion that those of us who have been running companies or multinationals during this period of time have been just on “training mode”. The real thing begins now, in the midst of this chaos, the economy needs security, certainties, tranquility, horizons, prospects, experience and added value.

The Crossroads of Managing Compliance

Madrid, October 27, 2020.-  In the current difficult circumstances of today and for all companies operating in developed economies around the world, the management of compliance is experiencing a decisive development period which might become critical for their survival. The Covid19 pandemic still lacks a clear horizon of certainties, with no date for its eradication and its coexistence among human beings as just another virus.  Particularly important is becoming the work of the CFOs because the flow of money has been reduced, due to the stagnation of the supply and demand chain last spring, therefore new and extra financing sources must be sought. I have had the opportunity to read some interesting analysis on compliance management and its impact on the evolution of the new CFOs role (CFO 3.0 era), and its impact on the health of Corporate Social Responsibility.

Madrid, October 13, 2020.-  Nobody has the keys to get the optimal performance of the human capital of our companies today. We only have the “past”, the teachings of a previous time that has nothing to do with the present. Today is imprecise. And the future is unfeasible.
