Webcast Summary

During our December webinar we examined the role of the CFO in planning for global growth. For this webinar, we’ll build on our discussion and dive into the specific challenges of international expansion. We’ll discuss best practices for managing risk while supporting and continuing to plan for global growth.

By attending this webinar, you’ll learn the challenges and risks that represent the largest barriers to expansion into new countries and how CFOs can overcome them. We’ll explore the challenges that are top of mind for today’s CFOs such as:

  • Navigating economic, regulatory, and political environments internationally
  • How to balance the reward of greater profits and market share with the challenges of finding and onboarding talent when hiring overseas
  • Accounting for the stability of currency and staying up-to-date on the latest international tax and accounting standards
  • The resources available and practical first steps for overcoming these challenges for 2020 and beyond
