Join talent leaders and executives from organisations around the globe to dig into some of the thorniest challenges facing supply chain and logistics decision-makers and leaders today.

- Macro-level trends, disruption and the strategic planning needed to counter them, plus a future-forward look at predicted transformation and evolution of supply chains.
- Analysing the toughest supply chain decisions facing boards today: from the end of globalisation, to funding the ESG agenda, and leading through inflation.
- Emerging supply chain talent trends: from new types of candidates to defining the ‘true supply chain leader’, and the implications of the war for talent.
- Increasing resilience: greater visibility with data and systems, and how to improve operational decisions with analytics.
