CR practitioners with an international role constantly need to adapt their global strategy when they implement it in a local context. Leading businesses will share with the audience how they achieved effective collaboration between international and local operations and the challenges and issues they addressed.

The breakfast meeting will include presentations followed by a Q&A session.
