We are never able to control risks of political upheaval and global political risk is not a factor in many global markets. Missing out on opportunities for your company by avoiding volatile markets WILL cost your company profits! Companies employ “A team” credit professionals that contribute information and strategies to expand sales. This webinar will give you the resources to get noticed as an “A team” member!

In today’s market, global credit professionals need to continue their professional development, learn as much as they can and obtain as many professional designations, similar to the CICP designation, as possible to secure a spot on an employer’s “A team.” These “A team” members provide education, value and resources to their employers and colleagues and secure/guarantee their spot as a valued part of the organization for years to come.

When it comes to improving global business performance, managing political risk helps “A team” members protect new and existing global investments and operations by helping management anticipate the business risk implications of political change or instability. Prepared and aware, management is more likely to be able to exit markets that are in danger of growing too unstable. Where short-term instability does not dampen the appetite to pursue long-term opportunity, management can implement risk mitigation and operational oversight to control against surprise. “A team” members are constantly looking out for new opportunities. Monitoring political risk within target regions or across continents can help management identify political developments that predict business success!
