With the COVID-19 coronavirus moving so fast, many people are working from home and feeling isolated, looking for insight, advice and information. It is more important than ever to share ideas and create a platform for informed debate.
For this reason, we're hosting, "The Supply Chain Bunker", a weekly online panel discussion hosted by Dave Evans, CEO of Fictiv, and journalist and writer, Philip Stoten. This weekly drop-in virtual gathering will include luminary guests from the industry, whose experience and insight we hope will help everyone. We want this to be an informal and interactive experience, so we’ll be taking questions from the audience throughout the hour.
RSVP once to register for the weekly series. Each week, we'll remind you by email and you can drop in for as long, and as often, as you’d like.
