2-3 p.m. (ET)

We live in a crisis-prone global economy marked by the increasing connectedness of global markets, economies, and institutions, as well as various regional and national economies moving at different speeds. In one recent survey, 44 percent of global CEOs reported feeling confidence in economic conditions, up from 18 percent just one year ago. But nearly two-thirds express significant concerns about a potential slowdown in emerging markets, as well as the risks posed by fiscal debt and deficits. Join subject-matter experts for a discussion about the challenges and opportunities that shifting economic forces are posing for companies, and the implications for boards in providing effective oversight of their organizations' strategy and risk management activities
