Global focus on product contamination and acts of nature has recently reignited the business community’s need to prepare for, and manage, incidents occurring along the supply chain.
On the 12th and 13th November this year, approximately 150 senior executives and industry experts from the supply chain and BCP communities will gather in Berlin, Germany for Supply Chain Risk Management 2007, with risk mitigation high on the corporate agenda. Comprising an array of keynote sessions, panel discussions, vendor-led interactive workshops and an unparalleled networking model, SCRM 2007 will provide delegates with key insights into how global enterprises are overcoming the vulnerabilities that lie within their existing supply chains.
Incorporating leading businesses such as DELL, Bulmers, Johnson & Johnson and Sharp Electronics, the agenda for this year has been thoroughly researched and developed to fully reflect the vast array of risks that businesses face in operating a complex global value chain. Highlights on Day One include Alistair Smith of British Energy who, as Chief Risk Officer, will focus on the importance of establishing a risk culture and appetite within the organisation, while Aidan Murphy, Supply Chain Director at Bulmers will reveal the measures he has put in place to ensure his supply chain is always ready and prepared for the unthinkable.
Day Two will open with Mark Servidio, VP Logistics and Environmental Supply Chain Planning at Sharp Electronics who, with Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) issues coming to the top of the consumer agenda, will highlight his work in developing an environmentally friendly supply chain. Harsh Babarkar, Head of Regional Distribution for Asia Pacific, Johnson & Johnson will also be revealing his efforts to prevent counterfeiting and illegal entry and ultimately uphold product and patient safety along the healthcare and pharmaceutical chain.
Oliver Sloane, Group Director of Supply Chain and Manufacturing Industries at WTG London who are producing the event commented “We are delighted to be working with some of the leading solution providers in this space, who will compliment the industry-led conference sessions by hosting interactive workshops, in turn providing thought leadership on the prevalent supply chain risks and challenges companies currently face. For instance, Ernst & Young will be hosting a session on the financial supply chain, inviting delegates to be part of an interactive discussion on linking financial decisions to the physical supply chain. Meanwhile, Simflex will be examining the Sales Inventory & Operational Planning (SIOP) process, and highlighting what businesses can do to minimise inventory levels and fulfil demand.”
With the portfolio of cutting-edge case studies on show, Supply Chain Risk Management 2007 promises to successfully create a roadmap for Supply Chain Directors and Chief Risk Officers to minimise their exposure to an array of threats such as disaster recovery, skills shortages and forecasting customer demand.
“We are very excited about this year’s event and look forward to bringing everyone together in November for a hard-working but rewarding two days,” concluded Sloane.
