Choose from 3 “Workshop Wednesday” Sessions:

Workshop 1:


Developing Your 30-60-90 Talent Action Plan

Join an in-depth workshop that focuses on developing your talent action plan. Gain insight into top talent acquisition and retention trends, discuss trends and real-world organizational applications. Leave with your own personal talent action plan.

Presenters:

Alexander Alonso, Ph.D. SHRM-SCP, Chief Knowledge Officer at the Society for Resource Management (SHRM), Kevin Harper, Deputy Chief Human Resource Officer, Walmart (2002-2018) and a cross-functional procurement professional panel (to be announced)

Workshop 2:


Risky Business: Creating the Path to Resilience

It’s now widely accepted that supply chain risk management (SCRM) programs should be aligned with a company’s strategic goals and designed to improve return on investment (ROI) rather than simply meeting operational objectives. Yet developing a SCRM program that produces the ROI available while also maintaining a resilient and efficient supply chain, is a difficult and long-term process. In this workshop, you will accelerate your understanding of what constitutes a truly mature and robust SCRM program. You’ll learn key insights and lessons from top performers in the supply chain profession, and you’ll work collaboratively and competitively to solve real-world supply chain disruptions via supply chain simulation.

+ Bring your phone. Everyone will be downloading an app to play an interactive simulation game!

Presenters:

Sandeep Ramachandran, Director of Product Management, Resilinc, Melinda McCants, External Supply Risk Management, Amgen, Christopher Wolf, Procurement Officer, Western Digital, Bindiya Vakil, Founder & CEO, Resilinc, Tom Linton, Chief Procurement and Supply Chain Officer, Senior Advisor at Flex

Workshop 3:


Revolutionary Value: Developing Supplier Innovation & Strategy

In this workshop you will be inspired by revolutionary stories of how most cutting-edge companies tap into supplier capabilities to drive increased collaboration, diversity and innovation. Learn to apply the innovative approach to problem solving and identify opportunities for innovation within your own supplier base.

Presenters:

Kimberly DeWitt, Head of Procurement and Material Control, CF industries; Traci Metzger, Manager, Ecommerce-Enterprise at Connection; Amrita Joshi, Chief Marketing Officer, App Orchid, Inc.; Darlyne Freedman, VP of Strategic Sourcing and Procurement at Ruiz Foods
