Thursday September 28, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
From Audit Committee Institute

KPMG and NACD

Event Overview

Understanding the intersection of politics and markets is essential as geopolitics, political uncertainty, and the pull-back on globalization continue to fray and test relationships and markets around the world.

This quarter, Eurasia Group’s Ian Bremmer will delve into the hot spots and bright spots impacting corporate strategies in the months ahead—Brexit and the future of the EU, immigration and humanitarian crises, ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and tensions in Asia, a slowing China and emerging India, political gridlock in the U.S., and more.

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