Event description

Description

If global businesses are the biggest beneficiaries of trade, what is their responsibility to advocate for it? Why have the traditional ways of influencing the political process failed—and how can business leaders take back the debate? It’s not all messaging, though. Should businesses embrace new policies and practices? Are businesses getting what they want out of NAFTA renegotiation? Is it even a priority? Is automation making this a moot issue for business?

Guest Speaker: Doug Oberhelman, Former CEO of Caterpillar
