Doing Business in Brazil: How to Keep Your Workforce Healthy, Safe & Secure
Thursday, December 5, 2013, 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time

With the Confederations Cup in the rearview mirror, travelers and organizations are looking ahead to major sporting events hosted by Brazil in 2014 and 2016. Meanwhile, organizations today continue to send their workforces and travelers to this South American nation which has experienced amazing growth in recent years.

While Brazil has made great strides in infrastructure, traffic congestion and health care, risks remain. As companies prepare their employees to succeed in Brazil, this complimentary webinar will spell out the challenges and rewards for travel to Brazil:

  • What are the leading practices in keeping international travelers, expatriates, their dependents and others healthy, safe and secure?
  • What are the key travel security risks? Will security forces keep protests in check during world events?
  • Is the health care system robust enough to handle the crowds? What should everyone know to navigate the health care system?

Our expert panel will also look at recent headlines and events, with a look ahead to others. We'll also explore tips for preparing travelers and expatriates for Brazil, not only for the upcoming events, but for travel in general.
