NACD-CT will host a breakfast panel event in Stamford that will look deep inside the corporate governance crystal ball to see what the future holds for directors in 2016 and beyond. Will geopolitical risk and economic malaise overseas dampen growth in our businesses and create difficulty in financing growth? We will be exploring the outlook on the global and US economy as well as the key factors that will have impact. Geopolitical risks will be explored both as a standalone factor and in terms of how they will influence the economy. There will be a discussion of the energy and commodity sectors and there implications for the general economy and capital markets. The implications for Directors relate to: Budgets, Planning, Overseas Investments, Financing, M&A, Optimal Debt Levels, and a host of Risk Management issues.
