Prior to COVID-19 companies were already having to adjust to new or evolving geopolitical and cyber risks impacting their supply chain. While these risks were substantial, COVID-19 is forcing many companies—and even entire industries—to rethink and transform their global supply chain model. Some of these reasons include:

    • Companies are being forced to abruptly shift to new business models in ways that significantly alter their risk and resilience.
    • Supply chains, already a target of economic nationalism in some countries, now face new questions about risk concentration.
    • Revenues are falling globally under twin blows of production disruptions and weakening demand with a ripple effect among third party vendors and contractors.

While COVID-19 may be the catalyst for companies to revisit their global supply chain strategy and accelerate the adoption of new models and capabilities, short-term actions need to be made to respond to the immediate challenge

Please join our experts in understanding how to approach some of the key risks currently being faced.

We plan to leave plenty of time for audience questions and — as I have taken to doing for any webcast, if (as is very likely) there is not sufficient time for all questions to be answered, I will seek to answer any unanswered questions here on the blog.

If you or your company are involved in any way with the medical devices, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or really with any product implicated by global supply chains, we urge you to join us.

We hope to “see” you there.
