Closing Keynote: The State of the Supply Chain Globally (How Complexity Creates OPPORTUNITY!)
Supply chains, and the professionals who run them, play a critical role in keeping goods moving and economies running. With the explosive growth of e-commerce, plus the use of brand-new technologies such as AI and blockchain, the demand for supply chain professionals continues to surge. Supply chain touches every step in the product life cycle; from growing, mining or creating a material, to delivering it into the hands of the consumer, plus all the activities in between: sales and operations planning, new product development and engineering, risk management, corporate social responsibility, and so much more.
A career in supply chain assures a wide variety of work, high salaries, stability and job satisfaction. And, whether you’re just starting out or making a career change, there is a good chance that the skills you already have are transferable to working in supply chain! If you’re in search of a career that offers more than just a paycheck, look no further than supply chain.
This presentation will address specific areas within the supply chain discipline that will offer substantial growth and career satisfaction.
