A conversation with authors Hans Greimel and William Sposato
Greimel and Sposato’s critically acclaimed book, Collision Course: Carlos Ghosn and the Culture Wars that Upended an Auto Empire, is the gripping narrative of Ghosn’s rise to become one of the most successful and admired executives in the world, his shocking and sudden arrest and imprisonment, and his unlikely, incredible escape from Japan.
A Japanese court has just handed down a verdict in the trial of Ghosn’s right-hand man, Greg Kelly. This verdict is serving as a proxy for Ghosn, who having escaped the country to Lebanon, has avoided trial. The verdict has far-reaching implications for Nissan and its alliance with Renault, for expatriate executives, and for Japan as a whole.
On 9 March, authors Hans Greimel and William Sposato will join their editor, HBR’s Scott Berinato, to discuss the verdict and what it means. They’ll also update the Ghosn story with new information and revisit some of the dramatic moments from the book with new insight on those incidents based on trial testimony. Finally, they’ll look forward to what’s next for Ghosn, Nissan, Renault, and Japan.
We hope you can join us!
