As supply chains become more global and complex, serving more and varied markets with broader and more diverse product portfolios, a wide range of potential supply chain disruptions have the potential to undermine even the best laid plans. Widespread regional events, such as Hurricane Sandy, have shown us that it is not enough to just plan for our own organizations. We must also make sure that our critical suppliers are also prepared! Any type of organization - large and small, private-sector, government, and not-for-profit - can learn from this symposium! This event will have first-hand case studies, expert guidance and discussion panels for a day of learning and take-aways.
Who should attend? Contingency, business continuity and disaster recovery planners, procurement/purchasing, risk management, logistics, law enforcement & security professionals, IT, HR professionals, corporate communications, legal departments, etc. - anyone involved in supply chain management. There is content and learning for all types of organizations, large and small, for profit, government, and not-for-profit!
