The 2012 Conference Board CEO Challenge®— Voices from the Front Lines
In this new series of webcasts, we’ll hear from corporate practitioners on the front lines of addressing the top-ranked challenges. Executives from across the enterprise will join lively discussions of what they believe will be the most critical strategies for meeting these challenges.
Near the top of the challenges that CEOs identified were three external risks: economic, political, and regulatory. We will look at how companies manage in the face of these big risks to achieve their objectives. Are there steps that organizations can take or tools to use that can anticipate challenges in these areas? How are economics, politics, and regulation interconnected in a way that may present opportunities? What kind of time frame should organizations be using when considering these risks and planning for growth? What lessons can we learn about the impact of political and economic risks on regulation? How should these risk factors drive business decisions?
Audience: Heads of risk management, directors, and CEOs that are working on meeting compliance standards, and anyone who deals with risk. CEOs that are looking for strategies for Government Regulation are also encouraged to attend.
