Many organizations continue to grow their businesses through worldwide expansion and as a result, the drive to control costs, automate processes and deliver improved compliance increases. At the same time, the world is becoming more complex: There are more countries in the world than 20 years ago and even more legal and regulatory factors to consider.
Along with high rewards, "going global" comes with high potential for risks and costs. By attending this half-day, pre-conference workshop, you will be able to learn from a company that has undertaken this journey (BASF) along with a company that specializes in reducing risks and maximizing benefits for organizations undertaking global expansion (PayTech).
In this workshop you will learn:
