Part of the Economist Intelligence Unit, the research and analysis division of The Economist Group, the ECN is the c-suite executive briefing and networking service of The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).
The Associate Director of the Economist Corporate Network (ECN) in North Asia will be responsible for supporting the networks in Tokyo and Seoul, and will work with the Network Director to deliver a full suite of editorial services to members including advisory briefings, webinars, meetings, analysis and data.
Individual executives join the network in order to understand the political, economic and business environments of the markets where they operate, and to engage in discussions with the EIU and fellow members.
The ECN service primarily consists of
- a programme of meetings that create the opportunity to hear from outside experts and peers
- private briefings (presentations) delivered to clients at their management and strategy meetings
- curated interactions with ECN and EIU staff and fellow members
- summary reports and data (covering key economies and business issues)
The ideal candidate will possess the confidence and capability to engage senior executives; posses excellent analytical capabilities and the ability to convey compelling analysis persuasively; and the skills to help organise and moderate highly interactive discussions and meetings.
