[WEBINAR] 2017 Global Business & Compliance Outlook

June 6, 2017 | 9:00am-10:00am EST

A cloud of uncertainty hangs over the 2017 global economic outlook, as the business impact of political shocks from Brexit to the election of Donald Trump remain unresolved, while emerging markets struggle with domestic tensions and soft global demand. Yet the implications for companies with global ambitions are clear: businesses must stay ahead of eminent macroeconomic and geopolitical disruptions, as well as ensure their teams possess the necessary capabilities to navigate an increasingly complex compliance landscape.

In this exclusive webinar, presented by CREATe and Frontier Strategy Group, the presenters will address the following issues top-of-mind for internationally-focused executives:

  • What important scenarios in developed markets should executives prepare for?
  • What are the key drivers of opportunity for multinational companies in emerging markets?
  • How will key geographies perform across North America, Asia, Latin America, Middle East, Africa and Europe?
  • What key enterprise-wide risks are companies likely to face as they operate globally?
  • How can multinationals best work with third party partners to mitigate risks?
  • What are leading practices for global governance, risk management and compliance programs?
