About the Webinar

The Ukraine-Russia war has significantly exacerbated existing concerns about the business implications of geopolitical risk in today's increasingly complex and uncertain world. Decision-makers, investors, businesses, and other organizations alike have proven themselves predominantly ill-prepared to anticipate these types of geopolitical events and the resulting global ramifications for investment safety & strategy, site shifting, supply chain risk, and regulatory change.

What should decision-makers, investors and businesses do to mitigate these unprecedented challenges? Join RANE’s & Deloitte’s first “Geopolitical Boardroom Talk” webinar, where our panelists will dive deeper into the geopolitical risks that will generate the largest influence on international business in 2023/24. Our panelists will explore what actions decision-makers, investors, and businesses must focus on now and in the medium term from a risk & crisis management perspective

  • to better prepare themselves for managing geopolitical risks and mitigating their impact and
  • to significantly increase their organization’s overall resilience – to make better informed decisions regarding site (shifting), supply chain structures, production architectures, and the selection of sales markets.
