CPD 2This event focuses on how to identify and monitor risk within your supply chain and what to do in the event of a financial and/or operational failure at a supplier due to a variety of risks. Such failures can be caused by the geographical and geopolitical path of the supply chain, the financial position of your supplier or operational challenges.

  • What does it mean when an organisation is “being restructured” and what can you do about it?
  • What does a robust supplier risk management system include?
  • Do you have visibility through your supply chain and how do your 3rd and 4th tier suppliers have the potential to increase your vulnerability to a range of financial and, increasingly, reputational risks? 
Please note the presenter will be audio recorded and this will be made available as a podcast after the event.
