CIPS Seminar Series - Building Resilience

Thursday, 13 May 2021 - CIPS VIRTUAL PLATFORM


From compromised supply chains, halted trade routes and even extreme weather events, disruption has become part of the fabric of our lives. For SCM and procurement professionals, we need improved ways of assessing both short and long term risks and the associated impacts. This doesn’t necessarily mean complex tools, but a more focused approach. We invite expert speakers to discuss how to identify the key areas of risk most relevant to your business and use this foundation to build your resilience plan.
