2020 Supply Chain Debate to discuss the “New Normal” for Supply Chains
John Lewis, Mondelēz International and Holland & Barrett confirmed as speakers
Leading supply chain and consultancy SCALA has announced the details of its 17th Annual Supply Chain Debate.
On the 25th June, supply chain thought leader John Gattorna will be joined by John Munnelly, head of operations at John Lewis Partnership, Gavin Chappell, group supply chain and logistics director at Holland & Barrett and Phil Wood, associate director of strategic programmes at Mondelēz international. The panel will discuss how the Covid-19 pandemic will impact the future of supply chains and what supply chain leaders will do in response.
Combining the expertise of these speakers, the debate, being held virtually, will be co-hosted by SCALA directors, Dave Howorth and David Grahamslaw. The event promises to be an informative session, exploring the effects that Covid-19 has had on sourcing ability, supply chain resilience, sector agility and, the industry’s long-term sustainability.
In the 17th year of the debate, which is seen as one of the major events in the supply chain calendar, this year experts will be gathering virtually via Zoom to discuss major changes affecting the supply chain sector as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic, centred around the theme; ‘Covid-19: What is the future for the supply chain?’.
John Perry, managing director at SCALA, said: “In our 17th year of hosting our Annual Supply Chain Debate, we will be focusing on how the coronavirus pandemic could fuel change in the sector. Securing leading global supply chain gurus and executives across some of the UK’s biggest brands and major retailers is a great way to lead the discussion and I have no doubt that they will provide some key insights to the future of the trade and how businesses can prepare for what’s to come.”
The event is being held virtually via Zoom on the 25th June at 1pm. To find out more about attending visit https://www.scalagroup.co.uk/annual-debate/
