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.
