Supply Chain is in it's most entertaining albeit call it challenging phase. The continual growth of an inter connectivity of localized global markets has resulted in complex supply chains - which is seeing dynamics of both collaboration as well as competition. Needless to say the current global environment has only escalated the importance of re-visiting these elements leaving only more questions.

Anna has over 18 years of procurement and finance experience in global FMCGs and is a Founder of Pragmapoint - Procurement Consulting firm.

 

The power to the future lies in our present.


CIPS Northern Emirates Branch strongly believes that Procurement and Supply Chain professionals have the power to Engage, Enlighten, Empower and Embrace – to continually elevate their values, particularly in current challenging environments.
