JCCI/The Nippon Club to Team with Brunswick Group for Online Business Webinar

Management and Governance of Overseas Subsidiaries

Tuesday, October 27 from 3:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Online Business Webinar

Admission: Free

As Japanese companies further develop their overseas businesses, the need for cross-border risk management and stakeholder engagement has become inevitable. The way companies interact with stakeholders (shareholder/investors, customers, employees, the media, regulators, etc.) is becoming more complex as technological innovations and values/norms change at an unprecedented rate.

Especially in critical situations, such as crisis responses, that can affect the fate of a company, misalignment of interests and any mistake in the steering of the strategic direction can have serious implications for corporate value, social credibility, and business activities.

In this webinar, Brunswick Group, the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New York/The Nippon Club will introduce attendees to the topic of management and governance of overseas subsidiaries, particularly from the perspective of management. The focus will be on the key points of the basic stance to take and crisis management in a situation where a multilayered stakeholder response is required to address a crisis in your overseas business.

Takashi Kawamoto, Director of Brunswick Group, will lead the webiniar.

The event will be held in Japanese, but The Nippon Club will provide real-time subtitles in English through Wordly, a service that converts a presenter’s spoken words into subtitles using AI translation.
