The Alberta International Development Office (AIDO), Simon Fraser University (SFU), and the Management and Economics Society (MES) of CIM are pleased to present the following joint informational event:
Navigating Risk in International Business Transactions
Participants will gain an understanding of the pitfalls of applying traditional risk assessment methods; addressing corruption risks in foreign ventures and finding alternative risk mitigation options; and evaluating and managing reputational risks.
You are invited to join the session in-person in Calgary and Vancouver and online over webinar. Note that we have limited space in our boardrooms both in Calgary and Vancouver so it will be on a first-come, first serve basis. Our presenters in Calgary are Bonita Croft, Cogent Counsel, and Frank McShane, CESG Consulting. In Vancouver, Alan Franklin, Global Business Risk Management, will be presenting in person. The session will be connected via video conferencing and participants from both cities will have an opportunity to engage with and receive feedback from all three speakers.
