This posting serves as a sidebar to our previous Supply Chain Matters blog commentary; The Beginning of NAFTA Renegotiation Talks- Monitor and Be Prepared.

We wanted to advise members of Accenture Academy that Founder and Executive Editor Bob Ferrari will be delivering an upcoming trendTalk web seminar fittingly titled: Managing Supply Chain in a Volatile Geopolitical Era. This exclusive trendTalk is scheduled for September 20 at 10 am Eastern time.

Every day we observe headlines that provide updates on the current wave of anti-globalization and anti-trade sentiments that are sweeping the geopolitical landscape. With heightened global tensions now turning toward anti-trade and possibly more protectionist rhetoric among developed nations, industry supply chains must be prepared to deal with potential near- and long-term implications that such policies will bring about. 

This trendTalk examines the current anti-trade and anti-globalization forces impacting various nations and considers the uncertainties they generate. The potential impacts to industry supply chains and the new opportunities brought about in such an environment will be explored. We’ll look at important tools that can be utilized and the steps your business and its supply chain organization can take to be prepared or to take advantage of these impacts.

Accenture Academy members should be able to view and register for this upcoming webcast in the upcoming events section of the member portal.
