This webinar will highlight some of the implications for GCs in this world to help them anticipate and navigate the challenges.  

Topics of discussion will include: 

  • Brexit and trade wars – What we are seeing in terms of restructuring / decoupling of supply chains and why, as well as demystifying some of the terminology.
