An Evening with Jeffrey Greene, Author of The Stress Test

Thriving in an uncertain world with a robust Capital Agenda
Author Speaker Series

 

Hear from the lead author of The Stress Test Every Business Needs: A Capital Agenda for Confidently Facing Digital Disruption, Difficult Investors, Recessions and Geopolitical Threats. One CFO called the book:
 
“. . . a remarkably comprehensive guide for companies who are obsessed about creating shareholder value. You  
and the authors managed to cover a wide spectrum of the role of CFO's and CEO's in moving companies forward.”

The Stress Test examines the quest for competitive advantage through a firm's Capital Agenda – how executives manage capital, execute transactions and apply corporate finance tools to strategic and operational decisions. Building resilience means preparing for emerging threats—macroeconomic, geopolitical and technological—as well as maintaining capacity to seize unexpected opportunities.

The book's contributors distill more than 400 years of their collective experience into practical guidance for business leaders trying to master both their Capital Agenda and the ability to future-proof their companies. Here are some questions the book helps address:
 
  • Are you ready for an activist shareholder's critique?
  • What's your business strategy in a digital world?
  • Have your past acquisitions earned more than their cost of capital?
  • Can you explain your “conglomerate premium”?
  • How large is the gap between your intrinsic value and market value?
  • How well do you incorporate uncertainty into investment planning?
