On Tuesday, May 16th 2017 (8:30 - 10:30am) at Le Coq Rico Restaurant, FACC Corporate & Councilor Members are invited to attend a breakfast on how geopolitical uncertainty is now a major business concern.
The consensus among 1,400 chief executives of the globe's largest companies is that the world is growing more fragmented and unstable, which for business is manifesting in divergent legal and regulatory schemes, currency fluctuations and differing cultural beliefs among consumers. Multinational organizations must be aware of, and prepare for, such political and economic risks in both developed and developing markets. PWC's recent 20th Annual CEO Survey shows that with globalization shifting to a multi-dimensional tug-of-war among power centers, economic growth, and geopolitical threats, most CEOs are now dealing with multiple value systems, frameworks, and trading blocs.
Our key speaker, Stephen Atallah (Senior Executive Vice President North America at COFACE) will share his experience and advice on how to thrive in periods of geopolitical uncertainty.
This event is reserve for FACC Corporate & Councilor Members.
