Change Makers Presents

Strengthen the Supply Chain

Virtual, Private Panel Discussion


Wednesday 13th March


11:00 – 12:00 GMT

“While technology helps, of course, it won’t cut it on its own — supply chain networks are first and foremost people networks.” 


– Forbes 2023

With the recent advancements in technology, including AI and IoT’s use across each stage of the supply chain, organisations are spoiled for choice of ways to increase operational resilience and efficiency. And with AI’s ability to improve employee productivity by 66% [Forbes, 2023], it is a fool-proof way to get ahead of the competition.


However, improving the technology is only half the problem. Without the proper people infrastructure in place, you will not reap the benefits. It is no coincidence that 80% of digital transformations fail while only 8% of companies have enough in-house talent to support large digital transformations [Forbes, 2023]. Investment in people is as crucial as investment in technology.


The capability of modern-day technology is undeniable, but people are still the supply chain’s greatest asset. How will you ensure your people infrastructure is in place, so that you can integrate cutting-edge technologies to improve operational efficiency within your supply chain?


Senior decision-makers working across either Operations, People, or Supply Chain management within distribution, logistics and manufacturing businesses. This discussion will be valuable to you if you’re looking to optimise your supply chain and ensure your organisation is ready for 2024. 


Attendance is capped to ensure every participant is able to contribute. The meeting is only open to invited participants or those who have been referred by a colleague or our partner, Advanced.

We’re committed to supporting our society and environment. When you attend a Change Makers Club event, we pledge to neutralise your carbon footprint. To offset your travel or energy usage we will plant a tree via One Tree Planted. Once mature, the average tree has a net absorption of 30 kg of CO2 per year, which equates to 227 miles of travel by car or 96 hours of office usage. You can see our maths here.
