It’s finally here -the opening day of the annual Tompkins Supply Chain Leadership Forum.
I think that I’m more excited about this year than any other, and I certainly have some great reasons to feel this way today as I sit in Nashville pondering how far this event (and the field of supply chain in general) has come.
At the decade mark, the forum boasts some of the highest quality speakers and sessions available in the world, has greatly surpassed previous attendance records, and has evolved into the premier event for supply chain and logistics leaders. I could not be more proud of this 10-year-old!
The forum is where big ideas are created and lasting business relationships are made. It’s also where some of the brightest leaders in the industry come together and share best practices, key challenges, and recent discoveries.
I will be joining top supply chain leaders for a kick-off reception sponsored by JDA Software Group this evening, and then I’ll be presenting the opening keynote, Responding to the Alibaba Effect, tomorrow morning. (You can watch my video on this hot topic here, in case you missed it.)
