As the Global Pandemic raged these last two years, its effects reverberated around the world. The lives of everyone on the planet changed – in the home, with our children, and in the workplace. Supply chain was brought to the forefront with a seat at the table in navigating through recovery. There really is no “return to normal” at this point, rather we are evolving beyond surviving to thriving in this new world.

Join us on April 7 to listen to experts and peers discuss how they have navigated through the last few years to best position themselves into the future.

  • How have leaders built resilience in their organizations to survive and thrive through adversity?
  • What are they doing to position themselves to remain competitive into the future?
