What is the focus of the Leadership Series in New York?

In its ninth year, The ELEVATE Leadership Series in New York City shines a spotlight on today’s sustainability and supply chain performance solutions that are delivering transformation now. For supply chain management, this means protecting your business while also investing in the right improvement opportunities.

Hear from leading speakers who will examine 2018 trends that include supply chain consolidation and segmentation, vendor growth and new opportunities for supplier ownership, the ever-present risk of unauthorized subcontracting and forced labor, and emerging technologies and analytics that are transforming the way we assess, manage and improve our supply chains.

Benefits of attending

  • Cross industry discussions on the stages of transformation of supply chain management, corresponding risks and their resulting opportunities for effective solutions
  • Evolving legislation, policies and procedures in the U.S.
  • Our celebrated ‘lightning round’ where experts share trends and industry-disrupting technologies and advice for staying on track despite the many distractions
  • Additional topics ranging from pathways to supplier ownership and bottom up models to unauthorized subcontracting, at-risk populations, and leveraging rich datasets

This is the event you’ve come to trust for open, frank dialogue and pragmatic approaches that are ready for rollout. We’ve processed the learnings from recent years, and today, we’re focused on highlighting the approaches that are delivering transformation now.

We hope you’ll join us at The ELEVATE Leadership Series 2018 in New York City.
