We would like to alert our supply chain executive level readers to the upcoming Supply Chain Council’s Executive Summit program scheduled to be held on 18-20 September 2012.  A group of high caliber speakers, and a few more joining in the next few weeks, have agreed to join us at the Miramonte Resort and Spa in Indian Wells, California this September.

The Summit is a one-of-a-kind annual industry event.   It is developed and supported by the nonprofit Supply Chain Council, is not owned by any consulting or software company, and is open only to executive level attendees. Speakers will talk about what they want to share with peer executives.  As a result, this program leads to great open sharing, debate, and incredible high level networking.

This year’s summit will address transformative factors impacting today’s global supply chains and how thought leaders are responding.  You’ll learn how the conventional wisdom of low-cost-country and global footprint is evolving.  You will additionally hear from peers on how they’ve built global, yet nimble supply chains and how they’re structuring their organizations for success.

As in previous events of this kind, this author has been asked to lead the composition and facilitation of the Industry Analyst and Pundits Roundtable panel which is scheduled as the concluding keynote of the event on Thursday.

We hope you will join us at this important and timely event. You can gain additional information and register for this upcoming event by double-clicking on the Executive Summit North America conference logo in our featured supply chain conferences panel located on the right-hand portion of this blog.
