*Please note the registration for this event is being handled by Leeds University Business School.

Many supply chains have been seriously disrupted in the last two years, by the COVID-19 pandemic, Brexit and geo-political tensions. The recent blockage of the Suez Canal further demonstrates how fragile the global supply chain is.

Together with Leeds University Business School, we are delighted to invite you to the annual Supply Chain Summit for 2021, which will be held virtually, where we will explore how companies have adapted their supply chains to survive these unprecedented disruptions and share lessons learnt. We will explore critical questions that arise, such as whether there is a need to significantly change the structures of the global supply chains to become more resilient and agile, or whether there is a need to deglobalise.

We will be joined by representatives from World Commerce & Contracting, Jaguar Land Rover, Rolls Royce, SAP Ariba, Ministry of Justice, EcoVadis and Proxima. Our keynote presentation will be from David Boynton, CEO of The Body Shop.

We look forward to seeing you there.
