              Executive Roundtable

              Registered Practitioners & Associates across all four streams are invited to attend a roundtable discussion on supply chain resiliency. According to the APICS Dictionary, resiliency in the supply chain is defined as:

              The ability to return to a position of equilibrium after experiencing an event that causes operational results to deviate from expectations. Resiliency is increased by strategically increasing the number of response options and/or decreasing the time to execute those options. Resiliency is improved by risk monitoring and control. 

              Registrants outside NSW will be able to live stream and add inputs to the discussions; including polling for opinions and points of view. 

              Click here to register to the live stream registration

              There will also be a tour of the Schneider Electric new site (pictured below). Lunch will be provided. Places strictly limited. Register via the website to secure your place.

              This event is awarded two continued professional development points. It is a free event that is exclusive to Registered Practitioners & Associates only.  The event will replace the June quarterly executive roundtables in each stream.


              We look forward to seeing you there.

              Thank you!

              Supply Chain Vision In The Decade For Action

              The United Nations’ “Decade for Action” calls for accelerating sustainable solutions to all the world’s biggest challenges ranging from poverty and gender to climate change, inequality and closing the finance gap. Our global supply chains are not immune to these challenges and have their own set of sensitivities to global political, economic, geographic and social climates.  

              In its third year as the largest gathering of supply chain managers in Australia, ASCI2021 will provide clarity around what is expected of supply chain managers and what the priorities are to act and lead a future-proof global supply chain into the new decade.  

              Five themes will run throughout the conference program across six streams over three days: 

              People, culture and skills 
              Sustainability, ethics and social outcomes  
              Governance, compliance and regulation  
              Agility, operations and risk management 
              Trending technology and new supply chain ecosystems
