Mitigating Supply Chain Risk in Today's Uncertain World

Wednesday, June 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm • Organized By Missouri Enterprise
Online Event


Now is the perfect time to bone up on your Supply Chain risk mitigation knowledge to help you minimize risk and leverage opportunity before it passes you by. You’ll find no better speaker for this topic than Missouri Enterprise’s own Tom Gordon, an APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional who knows more than a thing or two about manufacturing excellence and production flow. Tom boasts an impressive curriculum vitae with over 5 decades of international manufacturing experience in diverse industry sectors, including roles from the shop floor to the board of directors. He really has been there and done that in the real world of manufacturing.


We’re sure you’ll enjoy Tom’s captivating style as he mixes in a bit of his trademark wry wit while sharing his knowledge and first-hand experience in the world of Supply Chains. You’ll learn his views on how Supply Chain is the foundation for a smooth manufacturing operation, and how disruptions could result in serious profit loss, bottlenecks, compromised quality and even crippling damage to your reputation. As Tom so aptly puts it, “How would you like to be the one to tell Boeing they’ll have to halt their production because your line is shut down due to supply chain issues?” The best way to prevent such a scenario is to suss it out now, understand your potential risks and develop an actionable risk mitigation plan. Key topics in this interactive webinar event will include:


·      Common Supply Chain risks.

·      How to determine the potential impacts of those risks.

·      Preparing for known (and unexpected!) risks.

·      The importance of inventory management.

·      Risk management tools and metrics.

·      How great risk can bring great opportunity.

·      Interactive Q&A session.
