About the Event
Expatriates sent overseas by their employers have played vital bridging roles between countries, continents and cultures for over a century. But after the heyday of talent globalisation during the first two decades of the 2000s, recent years saw a drastic reversal in global mobility, constructive relations between states, and openness to foreign ideas, talent and investment. New challenges call for new approaches. People who once considered expat assignments a form of promotion prefer to stay closer to home and connect virtually. Stricter immigration regulations and a recovering travel industry makes once attractive destinations seem farther and more bothersome. Geopolitical tensions and unfriendly news coverage between polarising nations undermine cultural curiosity and empathy.
Building on research for his recent book 'Dragon Suit: The golden age of expatriate executives in China' (Business Expert Press, 2023), intercultural leadership coach Gabor Holch presents best practices from multinational firms and executives for overcoming newly emerging hurdles in the way of global talent mobility and the constructive cooperation between business people representing diverse cultures.
- Willingness and ability: How have profiles of successful expatriates changed during the past few years?
- Succession and support: What can firms and institutions do better to identify, choose, relocate and manage overseas talent in culturally challenging locations?
- The expat experience: What are the secrets of constructive cooperation across cultural and geopolitical divisions, and how can success stories spread and inspire?
