We are thrilled to present speakers from IBOPE, Aon, and Harley-Davidson Motor Company. These senior executives will lead a dynamic discussion about the effects that recent events and milestones may have on Brazil. 
With the World Cup, the Olympics, and the presidential election fast approaching, Brazil is about to embark on a journey of change. Issues such as healthcare, talent gaps, inflation, employee benefits, and unions are going to have a tremendous impact on multinationals in Latin America. How will these companies cope with the challenges facing Brazil?
Don’t miss what promises to be a stimulating discussion.
