International Subsidiary Boards

Overseeing the operations of your subsidiary while simultaneously managing the expectations of your parent board can be challenging. This role is more complex when the subsidiary or parent operates in another country where the laws and regulations may be very different.

Our one-day International Subsidiary Boards course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the risks, challenges, cultural implications and complexities of your role. This will support you to minimise your personal liability and maximise your subsidiary’s performance across multiple countries.
