“Businesses thrive in stable conditions. But if we’ve learned anything in the last few years, it’s that the new normal means volatility.” CGSCO’s speaker- Thomas W. Derry, CEO of ISM, said in an interview regarding supply chain trend in the coming year. “More stability and predictability in the supply chain translates into better product margins, better and more predictable earnings for companies, and thus higher confidence in the capital markets and better long-term returns for investors.”
Besides Thomas, Bill He from Kimberly-Clark, Tobie Gordon from Starbucks and Fanny Chen from Abbott Nutrition will also join the discussion of key issues in “Next-generation Supply Chains in the New Normal”. Through 20+ hours of quality presentations and networking, speakers will show delegates a clear roadmap to efficient and sustainable supply chain, and tell how to face the uncertain economy and volatile customer behavior.
