International Growth in a New Era


Protectionism, trade wars, retaliatory tariffs, and taxation schemes – among other issues – have been front and center in international trade conversations in the past few years. In this new year, how are directors to weigh the changes wrought by a pandemic, technology-titan trust-busting initiatives, new perspectives on trade policy, engagement with rising economic powers, and numerous other geopolitical factors? How can directors guide their companies to new growth opportunities while anticipating and planning for the risks inherent in these uncertain times?

Join this timely joint program from NACD Capital Area and the NACD Minnesota chapter as we discuss:

  • The new realities of trade policy
  • Evaluation of expansion opportunities in company growth strategies
  • Questions to ask management for proper understanding and quantification of trade risks
  • Discussion of alternative approaches to new markets
