Learn how companies are leveraging the lessons from the global pandemic, the war in Ukraine, high inflation and a rise in interest rates – all while still focusing on the future of global business.  As uncertainty continues and more people work remotely, companies will need to advance where they can, retreat as soon as they must, adapt as needed, and reboot a business for global growth.  

FACT: As companies contemplate adjustments to their global strategies, it is important to recognize how much continuity there still is even in a period of wrenching change. – Source: The State of Globalization in 2022, Harvard Business Review

Panel Discussion Reboot Business For Global Growth No. 1

Globalization has always been an uneven process, but if international opportunities and competitive threats mattered for a company before the pandemic, war in Ukraine, global supply chain woes, inflationary pressure, rise in interest rates – they will surely continue to matter in 2022 and beyond. These top execs, as the landscape has shifted, will share their experience on global strategies (updating them), global business growth, success stories, challenges and lessons learned. They will also address what they have done to reboot business for global growth.
