Invitation to the IERG Chicago Chapter 8th International Forum

Leading Globally: New Paradigms for Navigating Successfully in Today’s World

  • How are global leaders managing in today’s topsy-turvy business climate? 
  • How has the landscape changed? Generational? Societal? Technical?
  • How do multi-national companies navigate in growing cultural and political polarization?
  • What new skills or tool-kits do global leaders need to develop in order to succeed?
  • What are new paradigms of global leadership? How do they differ from past models?

Join us for a lively and informative exchange of ideas exploring these and other questions with four global business leaders who will share their first-hand knowledge and expertise gained at the helm of global operations.  With lessons learned from their own experience, panelists will discuss how they have capitalized on opportunities, overcome challenges unique to global leadership and outline what future business leaders need to do to be successful.
