Natural disasters, currency fluctuations, supply chain disruptions and hyper competitiveness are no longer reserved just for crisis anymore. They are the new normal. As the world’s No. 2 Japanese automotive manufacturer, Nissan has learned to drive change through myriad business challenges and not only survive—but thrive. Nissan’s President and Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn discusses how the company has operated through several years of crisis—from the “Lehman shock” to natural disasters that have included earthquakes and tsunami and now the Thai floods. Throughout, Nissan has had the added complication of a strong yen and stiff competition across the globe. Yet the company continues to experience profitable growth and has laid out an ambitious mid-term plan called “Nissan Power 88,” which aims for 8 percent global market share and 8 percent return-on-sales by 2016. Please join us to hear how Mr. Ghosn plans to lead Nissan through a tumultuous period in the company’s history.
