Connecting geopolitics, markets, and strategy

This quarter, Eurasia Group’s Ian Bremmer will delve into the hot spots and bright spots impacting corporate strategies in the months ahead—tariffs and other trade-related tensions, Brexit, U.S. unilateralism, cyber security and the emerging “tech cold war,” and more.

This 60-minute Webcast will also provide updates and insights on key financial reporting developments impacting audit committee and board oversight, as well as legal/regulatory developments impacting corporate governance.
