            Executive Roundtable

            Registered Practitioners & Associates across all four streams are invited to attend a roundtable discussion on supply chain resiliency. According to the APICS Dictionary, resiliency in the supply chain is defined as:

            The ability to return to a position of equilibrium after experiencing an event that causes operational results to deviate from expectations. Resiliency is increased by strategically increasing the number of response options and/or decreasing the time to execute those options. Resiliency is improved by risk monitoring and control. 

            Registrants outside NSW will be able to live stream and add inputs to the discussions; including polling for opinions and points of view. 

            Click here to register to the live stream registration

            There will also be a tour of the Schneider Electric new site (pictured below). Lunch will be provided. Places strictly limited. Register via the website to secure your place.

            This event is awarded two continued professional development points. It is a free event that is exclusive to Registered Practitioners & Associates only.  The event will replace the June quarterly executive roundtables in each stream.


            We look forward to seeing you there.

            Thank you!

            In its third year as the largest gathering of supply chain managers in Australia, ASCI2021 will provide clarity around what is expected of supply chain managers and what the priorities are to act and lead a future-proof global supply chain into the new decade.
