CIMA, the world’s leading and largest professional accountancy body, yesterday launched ‘Hundred & 10%’, CIMA Sri Lanka’s first-ever virtual career festival. 


The festival is a week-long event to be held from September 13-19, 2020, featuring global and local industry leaders coming together for a one of a kind career festival.


Sharing her thoughts on the initiative, CIMA Sri Lanka Country Manager Zahara Ansary, ACMA, CGMA, said, “The environment has dramatically changed since COVID-19 hit the world and has forced many companies to speed up their digital innovation and transformation. 

Therefore, especially during times like this, the youth and professionals of today need to build relevant skills that will help them assure their employability.


‘Hundred & 10%’ is the first-ever virtual career festival organised by CIMA and through this week-long festival, we want to inspire the next generation of Sri Lankan professionals to go above and beyond in their careers.


This festival will fully utilise the power of the digital landscape, whilst providing a platform where industry leaders, both local and global and individuals across the island can come together for an enriching learning experience.”


The week-long festival will feature a diverse list of key speakers across different industries covering topics relating to the five skills of the CGMA Competency Framework, namely technical skills, leadership skills, people skills, business skills and digital skills. 


Apart from the panel speakers, the festival will also host exciting events, including a hackathon calling out all individuals to register in a 24-hour competition, where participants will be tested on their problem-solving skills as well as an Elevator Pitch segment, where a selected number of entrepreneurs can pitch their product or business idea to well-known business leaders.


“CIMA focuses on providing a well-rounded education to its students across diverse careers, preparing them for today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities. Using the CGMA Competency Framework as part of our syllabus, we enable students and professionals to get resilient and ready with the insights and skills needed to flourish in a dynamic and rapidly evolving business landscape. Here at CIMA, we work towards supporting the concept of life-long professional learning and experience,” said Ansary. Among the featured business leaders headlining the event are: Ansary, CIMA Vice President/World Bank Head of Finance and Administration Sri Lanka and the Maldives Melanie Kanaka- FCMA, CGMA, Bluestone Capital Private Limited Founder and CEO Ajit Gunewardene, Jetwing Travels (Private) Ltd Managing Director Shiromal Cooray, Association of International Certified Professional Accountants Regional Vice President Asia Pacific Venkkat Ramanan- FCMA, CGMA, Tresync CEO Imran Furkhan- FCMA, CGMA and John Keells Holdings Head of Learning and Development Imani Perera.
