Event Details

It is no surprise that supply chains are often ranked among the highest risks that many organizations face.

In some industries, such as manufacturing, the complex web of third-party entities involved in providing components, sub-components and services can seem overwhelming. Then, add in the ever growing list of regulatory compliance requirements that impact the entire supply chain and things rapidly turn into a huge challenge for even the most experienced managers responsible for addressing corporate risks.

Failure in even a seemingly non-critical part of the supply chain can have huge ramifications, not only in terms of immediate financial performance, but also in corporate image and reputation. Just consider the impact that quality issues with defective airbags, or ignition keys, have had on many auto manufacturers.

The Supply Chain Risk Forum consists of in-depth panel discussions, practical case studies, interactive sessions and workshops, where VPs, directors, heads and managers and analysts engaged in supply chain management, logistics, customs and compliance will meet and exchange their ideas and experience.

Held for the 1st time in Singapore, the Supply Chain Risk Forum will showcase some of the best strategies and approaches towards supply chain risk identification, assessment and management in Singapore and South-East Asia.

Confirmed speakers and panelists include:

Madiha Tariq
Solution
SAPAriba

Neethi Nair
CCS Trade and Customs Consultant
(Independent) 

Fernando Oliveira 
Researcher and Consultant in Energy Markets
Independent

 Michael Ignatiadis
   Director-
   Supply Chain
   & Operations
   EY
