Supply chains have (understandably) been getting a lot of attention over the last year. Consumer goods shortages, the vaccine rollout, a boom in eCommerce demand, and of course the Ever Given have turned all eyes worldwide to the supply chain. This event will be interesting because it features a panel of industry experts and is being led by Jan Piotrowski, Business editor at The Economist: Danny Antezana, Senior director, supply chains at P&G, David Sheldon, Head of global supply chain development at Nestle, Dirk Holbach, Corporate senior vice president global supply chain, laundry & home care for Henkel, and Mike Jette, Vice president of consulting at GEP.

One of the things we heard loud and clear at Mastermind LIVE Spring last week is that procurement needs to fix the quality of our data and the nature of our supplier relationships in parallel. What better way to do that than through a purposeful focus on supplier information management (SIM)? If we have faster access to trusted information about our suppliers, we can not only improve the quality of our decision making we can also improve the experience for our suppliers, positively impacting procurement’s performance from inside and out. This ‘fireside chat’ will feature Adam Hubbard, Supply Chain Governance and Performance Manager at EDF Energy, and Jerry Grable, Director, eBusiness at BAE Systems, Inc.
