Tallin: Hello, welcome to Part 2 of our webinar – International Employment and Operational Considerations. This session will be focused on Europe update and Latin America and country withdrawal. My name is Tallin Johnson, I am the Marketing Manager at Global Upside and will be moderating the webinar today.
Before we jump into the content of the webinar, I did want to, first of all, welcome all of our registrants to be able to make it today. We want to thank you for spending some time with us and we did just want to cover a few items before we actually jump into the actual content.
First, I wanted to make everyone aware that this webinar session is being recorded, and a copy of the webinar and the slide deck will be shared with everyone who has registered, upon completion of the session. Next, we have enabled the Q&A function of this webinar, which will allow you to submit any questions that you do have throughout the webinar session. Our team is going to monitor all the questions that come through and we will work on answering the questions at the end of the webinar during our Q&A and any questions we are not able to get through at that time, we will send answers to individually, via email.
Lastly, we would like to also encourage any additional questions that you may have after the webinar. You can send those directly to us by email, emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be sure to route any questions that come through email to the correct person.
I would now like to take a minute to introduce our panelists to you. So first, I would like to introduce Andrew Wilson who is the VP of Private Equity and M&A at Global Upside. Andrew is an English chartered accountant who has extensive international experience working in London, Lagos Nigeria, Caracas, Venezuela, and San Francisco. We are really excited to hear from Andrew as he shares his knowledge and insights with us today.
Next, I would like to introduce Kym Sanderson who is the Director of Human Resources at Global Upside. Kym possesses considerable experience in international HR. In previous roles, she has worked as part of internal international HR teams, as well as in HR advisory functions. We are excited to hear from her as she shares her perspective, given her in-depth Human Resources knowledge.
Lastly, I would like to introduce Linda Lim who is the director of Client Services at Global Upside. Linda has over 20 years of experience in international finance, management, and consulting with both private and public industries.
