International Share Schemes: Exporting the Vision


Globalisation has meant that many businesses now operate on a truly international scale, but how can they keep corporate identity and cohesion in the midst of so great a variety of cultural, financial and legal complexities?

In this 45 minute webinar, share schemes expert David Craddock will examine the challenges of international share schemes, including language, legislation, currency and technology; and how employee share schemes can promote inclusivity and act as ‘corporate glue’, holding together the various subsidiaries into a global whole and the role of an international employee share trust.

A recognised authority on the subject, he is the author of The Tolley’s Guide to Employee Share Schemes , along with many other essential books and courses. David’s clients range from major public limited companies with international considerations to smaller private companies where the requirements are for Enterprise Management Incentives, tax-unapproved share scheme arrangements and market-making employee share trust structures. David has successfully established employee share schemes and employee benefit arrangements worldwide and to date has travelled to over 30 countries to personally facilitate their introduction. He enhances his service through a long experience in share reconstructions and share valuation.
