What experts say

As usual, we have prepared only practical things presented in a concise way. In addition, topical issues of today are also included in the agenda. You will hear incredibly interesting people from Ukraine and the world, reporting on the main stage. All of them are renowned for their success in transformations at both business and country levels. This year we have launched industrial workshops where you will learn about the specifics of transformation implementation in the relevant market segment from those directly involved in the change process.

This year we are planning something revolutionary and even of a larger scale. The participants are invited to three sessions held in several formats: presentation of the draft Tax Code of Ukraine and discussion of the key trends and changes in the Ukrainian legislation and business landscape (on the main stage), and two simultaneous streams of industrial workshops given by industry experts to share their insights into real business transformation cases.

The heavy agenda will be tempered with a startup alley and an evening mix of inspiring music and valuable networking.

Grigol Katamadze

President of the Taxpayers Association of Ukraine, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary

This is what any company striving to keep its business going, to scale up and expand, to attract investors, or even just to survive, needs.

All these trends are in full swing in Ukraine, and we are joining in many of them, albeit on a framework basis. This spurs company owners to active actions.

Either you change or your business will cease to exist.

Nataliya Ulyanova

Tax & Legal Partner at Deloitte Ukraine, Complex Business Transformation Leader

According to Deloitte's report, one of the most remarkable results of Industry 4.0 is the strengthening of the role of business in the areas where the state used to be in the driving seat or even a monopolist.

Indeed, business has its own resources allowing it to impact suppliers and customers. Business is more flexible than the state and more organized than the community. However, more influence means more responsibility.

In this context, business cannot afford itself to stay uninvolved. Is it ready for such changes? Is it ready to maintain the standards of transparency, integrity, social responsibility, environmental awareness, and corporate values?

Changes do not germinate in the governmental offices, they will rather emerge in the minds of specific people or come from their daily behavior.

Andriy Bulakh

Managing Partner at Deloitte Ukraine

I invite you to join the Level Up Ukraine community!

This year the Forum will focus on the trends and changes in taxation, which are the main drivers of changes and cannot but affect both business and the state.

Today’s challenges require us to change our practices and approaches to business. Transformations are not just well-timed in our country and in today’s business environment, they have already evolved into a powerful trend, and riding on the wave of its momentum we are capable of achieving a lot, I am sure.
